The Lawrenceville School Reviews
It is so fun and amazing! All the people there are so nice and although the classes are pretty difficult, the school does everything they can to help you and make life easier. The house system allows you to form unbreakable bonds with teachers and students, and the teachers are always there to meet with you and answer any questions even if the school day is over. The schedule is perfect with the right amount of classes each day and Lawrenceville goes above and beyond with the curriculum of their classes. I could say so much more but don't have enough space!
Entering Lawrenceville as a new sophomore was definitely not an easy or seamless transition. The rigorous lifestyle incorporating academic, athletic and social aspects was unquestionably a challenging and demanding one and took a while to adjust to. Despite these high expectations, it has not led to the development of a fiercely competitive attitude among students. In fact, one of the best parts about Lawrenceville is the meaningful connections you make with other students and faculty members, whether this is on the Harkness table during lessons, in a private conversation during consultation, or simply in your room when you're hanging out with your friends. Despite the hardships I had faced in the beginning, I whole-heartedly enjoyed my experience at Lawrenceville. I have created unique relationships with my peers and teachers that cannot be replicated elsewhere, some of which I believe can last a lifetime. These road bumps only made my time at the school more memorable and fruitful.
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.
