The Lawrenceville School Reviews

111 reviews
All Categories
Lawrenceville is among the top boarding schools in the Princeton area. The school's academic, residential, athletic, and artistic facilities are strong. Students are bright and hard-working. Lawrenceville's House/Residential System is a plus. But, problems abound. Although the school is coed, it still feels like an all-boys school. Hazing exists, and can be particularly rough on non traditional students. The academic work load is intense. Many who were #1 in middle school drown at Lawrenceville. The school expects it's students to keep up, and it's academic advising system is suspect. Students who excel receive awards, and those who struggle earn cold shoulders. Those who can't keep up are often shown the door faster. So, who excels? Wealthy, waspy, athletic kids from Princeton do well at Lawrenceville. For those less athletic, or less connected, it's a mixed bag. Tread lightly and carefully. For at Lawrenceville, all that glitters is not gold.

The Lawrenceville School is a wonderful place. It pushes you out of your comfort zone in so many ways. Over the course of four, three, two, or one years, you will learn a lot more about who you are as a person. I had a lot of trouble adjusting my freshmen year, but as a senior, I can look back and see how much I've grown each year! I am grateful for this place.
I have one graduate, one student, and one who has been accepted. I also have significant familiarity with other top boarding schools and their students. I feel that the Lawrenceville experience, while pressured at times and extremely challenging academically, is defined by a deeply joyful community of learners and teachers. The results in my kids have manifested academically, socially, in leadership and confidence. I could not ask for more in a school.
