The Lawrenceville School Reviews

106 reviews

I currently attend the school, and everything is just subpar, the campus is gorgeous however the school has huge teacher disparity. When I say that, the school doesn't have a constant grading, therfore it provides students with different leveled teachers for the same class, causing students who work harder to get worse grades compared to those that dont work as hard based on the teacher, affecting the students' GPA and honors classes, causing it to be unfair. In addition, it's obvious that the students' mental health is not great based on the pressure and the school still doesn't realize that certain students at the school are cliquey or straight mean, and yet don't bother to fix that issue.

The academics of The Lawrenceville are among the best. The teachers are all qualified and have extensive experience from the best high schools and colleges. The school offers many college level courses covering a variety of topics.The student advisors, housemasters and subject teacher provide the students/parents feedbacks through the interim reports, end of semester reports besides of the grade. Most of the teachers are very proud of being the lifetime learners, and they are the role models to the students.I appreciate the efforts to make the campus even more beautiful through various construction projects.
Lawrenceville is literally the best school ever. I have never been to a school where the teachers are as involved as they are at Lawrenceville. The food tastes good, but sometimes meals feel a little repetitive. Living in the Dorms is so fun, and most of my best friends live in my dorm. The school culture is amazing, it felt so easy to fit in when I stepped on campus. The school is also extremely diverse and I never really feel excluded from anything.
Some student might complain about the pressure Lawrenceville puts on them, but the help is there if you ask for it. There are at least two seniors in each dorm, and tutors in the library, not to mention all the teachers have office hours. I would recommend this school to anyone who can handle a 2 1/2 hour workload per night and enjoys having fun.
