West-Windsor Plainsboro High school South has excellent opportunities and activities for all students to partake in. The students have a wide range of interests, and I find that there are after school clubs to represent all of them. It is very easy to get connected with different people, even freshmen getting to know seniors, because certain classes have mixed grades, and all the offered activities build relationships. The academics are very good, with the teachers making honors classes very challenging and rigorous. The student body is very self-aware when it comes to academics, as everyone strives for good grades. The facilities could be improved upon, a few renovations to the school could improve the school environment.

It's really just eh. I spent four years here and after consideration, I feel most of my profound hs experiences happened outside South at precollege, in independent classes, and volunteering. The competitive atmosphere is something that is heavy at South, as shown by other reviews. While I've tried to distance, as a non STEM student I have second guessed my career, and opportunities provided within South only cater to the very top. Some friends, smart but unadjusted to sdized testing, have fallen out over jealousy, and it’s upsetting how fallings out over academic competition are common and even “normal”. Facilities are poor, but resources at South are still pretty great compared to area schools, so I'm pretty grateful for them. The best part of South are probably the faculty. Public hs is always a "what you get" situation, and you just have to make do. My one tip for any student is to seek opportunity elsewhere. Talk to your teachers about outside programs and work your ass off.
As a current sophomore at WW-P High School South, I genuinely believe the school is one of the best in the country. With outstanding academics, numerous clubs and organizations, and exceptional athletics, High School South exceeds in nearly every capacity. However, due to the rigorous curriculum, students at this school often experience academic pressure to succeed, and college admissions competition is cutthroat.
