10 Parent Reviews for Princeton Senior High School

The band at the school is phenomenal, and it is made possible by the band teacher Mrs. Kade. She teaches students how to take criticism and to be responsible, how working hard for something over a long period of time can achieve greatness.

It is not true that students from PSHS are unprepared. My daughter graduated 2 years ago and has the highest GPA in one of the best college nursing programs on the east coast.

My daughter is a sophomore and loves it here. It has one of the best high school sports facilities I've ever seen. Many colleges don't even come close to haing a football field as nice as Princeton High's.

This school isn't as bad as the other people in this review say, they have security guards for safety, they are a blue ribbon school, and almost all the students are in some type of sport.

This is the worst school. It has the least school spirit and some of the worst athletic teams and grades. People have no interest whatsoever in seeing their football games. That is how much everyone hates this school. iIt's truly amazing how few parents and citizens care about the school's activities.
