Extremely overrated and incredibly disappointing. The school takes credit for the work of the parents - do you honestly think the high SATs are the result of the school and teachers? This is a sink or swim waste of a place. No "teaching" happens here. The numerous local private schools are unfortunately ...  Read more

I'm a student at PHS and I love it here. They have all of the classes that I'm interested and practically everyone that I know feels at home here:).

Perfect blend of academic standards, community involvement and athletics. The experience for the kids is always placed front and center and it is clear from day one that they are expected to succeed and provide their best efforts at everything.

We're impressed by PHS's academic programs and amazing resources. Students are extremely engaged and are offered a wide variety of opportunities to learn and grow. There is something for everyone at PHS, and my children have thrived here. We're especially impressed by their music programs.

We ve found Princeton High School very disappointing, especially coming from the better run Cranbury School. The school has a good group of students, they have some decent sports teams and an excellent music program. They teach over 30 AP classes. The teacher and staff quality is average at best. There ...  Read more

The academics, athletic programs, and extracurriculars at Princeton High School as a package can not be beaten. The best teachers here are extraordinarily dedicated, especially in the Science, History, and English departments. Even the teachers some students complain about would be among the best in ...  Read more
