West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North Reviews

Over my four years of studying here, I can tell that WWP North is always updating their facilities, trying to bring comfort to the students and staff. The school really stresses on the importance of academics, the students are very academically competitive. To counter the high expectations that come from academically competitive schools, such as APs and honors are what students should be taking, is that the school got rid of finals and midterms as to not put pressure on the students. Still, sports are quite unpopular in the school and students are stressed. Overall, where WWP North excels in academics, they suffer in sports and student life.

West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North provided me a top-rated education. The student population was diverse and I was exposed to a variety of cultures and beliefs. WWP HSN always performed well on standardized tests and exams, proving strength in all academic categories. Our teachers are rated among the best and they care about their students. Athletics and after school clubs were abundant and open to all students. I felt appreciated academically and socially. I have great High School memories that I will definitely share with everyone I meet going forward.
The reason why I'm leaving such a low review is to shatter the false notion that this school is somehow exceptional. It is just another typical suburban middle/upper-middle-class NJ school. The school itself makes no decisions to create policies that improve the district. It's the culture present at the school -- the culture of competition generated by the 60% Asian population -- that does this. It is this force that drives kids to achieve higher than other kids in other districts, not some policymaking brilliance by school administrators. The school's above average SAT score is the result of kids seeing their friends score higher than them on the test, not the result of administrators squandering money on some "stress-relief workshops" or the infamous hallway art projects (while half of the school's temperature remains unstable for literally the entire year). But seeing high test scores is, unfortunately, enough to compel most people to inflate this school's true rating.
