This school is not so great and take it from me because; i went there and i had miserable time, worst four years of my life. I graduated in 2009. and from what i can tell you, this school is not is what you think it is. Some of the teachers actually teach and care about you, while others walk all over
... Read more you and just pass you for the heck of it. You don't even learn anything in some classes because; it depends on where your placed. Like if your placed in M or L classes, god bless you because; your not gonna learn anything whatsoever. You'll be just be depressed and sadly you'll be seeing the same people in all your classes which is not good and guarantee you, you will have no social life. Try and get in K or above classes if you actually care about your life and social life after high school. From my experience, its not a big school compared to other high schools. There's two buildings but there very small. You get to all your classes in like a minute. Students are okay, there basically divided among the social groups. A lot of students don't get along due to there popularity and fights do occur. Security is all over the place so your freedom is limited. Otherwise its decent school. Read less

This school is excellent as far as academics and athletics are concerned. I know, because I went there, Class of 1998. The school has excellent teachers in all of the major disciplines (english, science, history, foreign language, and art). There are a large number of both JV and varsity sports teams,

Swimmers must go off campus to practice at a pool in Stirling, and I believe meets are held in Sonny Werblin Rec. Center at Rutgers New Brunswick. Read less
