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.

I love the friends that I made there-- I am still very close to some of them and even some of the teachers as well. I graduated recently and still had friends at the school and I would pay them a visit in their after school activities.
The security has tightened a lot in my four years there-- with good reason. And whenever I could, I would bring my own lunch because I enjoy homemade cooking more than cafeteria food there.
South is very academically driven, as shown by students who are the top performers in the science and math related competitions held around the state. With this comes good academic standing, but also a lot of pressure for those other kids who aren't super smart geniuses. But it's okay, South has a place for everyone.
I made some great friends at South. Although the faculty was not always supportive (it's a public school, after all, and the student-teacher ratio was pretty high), I encountered many teachers over my four years here who were passionate about what they taught and cared for their students. One thing I will say, though, is that the district is infamous for its competitive nature, and many students here seem to prioritize "getting into a good college" over everything else, resulting in a bad learning environment.
