The Lawrenceville School Reviews
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.
The campus community provides a safe, nurturing environment to grow academically and personally. The academics are among the best. The teachers are all qualified and have extensive experience from the best high schools and colleges. The facilities are one of a college, including a STEM lab with VR and 3D printing, a building for every subject, and a huge library.House system provides opportunities to connect with smaller group of student. There are diverse group of residents in each house. The mandatory sport for each term brings out a lot of talent in students who would have never tried a sport otherwise. I think ıt is a life changing experience for my son.
I begged my parents to even let me go to boarding school. Many of the kids go to this school due to legacy or its mere good reputation. Coming from the south, this prep school was nothing like I'd ever seen before. Lawrenceville is a pressure cooker. Some people come out of it improved and thriving, while others leave (sometimes even before graduation) due to intense stress and feelings of inadequacy. Most people assume they are below average, even if they aren't actually. We live in what we call a "bubble," oblivious to the outside world and often forgetting how lucky we are. There have been many student-run initiatives to break this bubble. I believe there has been progress. I came out of Lawrenceville more confident, but I also both developed and overcame depression and anxiety likely because of it. It's a mixed situation. I would go again, but I would not force my child to attend. It's the best for people who want to attend.
