I don't know about now but back when I attended PHS 2006-2010 the students were cruel bullies. The administration just closed their eyes and pretended it wasn't happening because it would make them look bad.

We moved to Princeton, NJ from another NJ public school community specifically for the educational opportunities available in the Princeton Regional Public School system. Lack of opportunity and a unacceptable kindergarten experience in the previous school system forced us to enroll our first two children in private school through grades four and six. Although we ran into social issues, no unlike those found in any affluent predominately white community, at the end of the day I can honestly claim that all three of our children received first rate educations and were well prepared at graduation for their post high school and collegiate experiences. Today, although I still smart a bit about some of those social and community issues, they are stronger individuals able to read, write, calculate, stand on their own two feet and in control of their own futures. As a parent I can't ask for more, especially in this increasingly competitive world are children are going stepping out into.

Princeton High School is below average for our taxes and what keeps their ratings high are the kids and parents. The education is basic, a typical US public school, nothing special. The guidance counselors are significantly below average. You typically get wrong information if they do answer your requests so be very careful. You need to do your own research and not listen to them at all. This school needs an administrative overhaul. I'm very sorry I didn't pull my son out and have him do independent study and take classes at the local community college as a colleague recommended (she said it was the best decision that her son leave PHS). I'm considering starting a petition to have parents voice their dissatisfaction because I know for sure I'm not alone. My other son is a sophomore and I will sign him up for tutoring and outside classes in order to get him a better education. He likes the social aspect of PHS and doesn't want to leave but I know he's not really getting an education there so I need to supplement. I've learned my lesson.
