I have 2 who have graduated from PHS recently. One was not prepared to enter college and is playing catch up. The other is ready but was bullied mercilessly without any intervention from staff. I currently have one enrolled, and he has already been forced to deal with an assignment that he turned in being lost by the instructor, which resulted in an F on the assignment because of the ineptitude of the instructor. The sporting event access is NOT handicapped friendly, especially for football games, and results in disabled individuals either walking blocks to access the SINGLE disabled access gate or skipping the event altogether. The athletic booster club is more concerned about money than the students and programs, and this is proven by the exorbitant amount they are charging for reserved seating at the football games, which discriminates against low-income families. Administration has a "holier than thou" attitude towards parents and is standoffish when parents introduce themselves for any reason. Administration officials get belligerent to parents who bring up issues, insult parents who voice concerns, and refuse to help resolve issues or address concerns.

I am unsure to who is providing the previous posts but they are not objective or accurate, Looking at the overall school ratings as compared to the rest of the State of IL it demonstrates what can happen with Administration takes pride in staff development. 5 years ago the staff seemed less motivated to address the needs of all socioeconomic groups in PHS. Since the change in Administration staffing in that timeframe all groups have grown with testing levels and achievements. High School graduates are prepared for all levels of college with half going to community college and the other half attending 4-year schools or greater. Numerous kids have been assisted to the IVY leagues via the current PHS staff. AMAZING STAFF AND EFFORT in a lackluster state.

I have had one child who previously graduated from PHS and she could not wait to leave the school! I have another one that is getting ready to attend next year and I am dreading it! Which leaves us with the question "why should we send him to this school?" We have heard the unfortunate stories from other students and parents as to how the teachers and coaches treat the students! It is very saddening to me considering we are graduates of PHS ourselves! Something needs to change!!

Suffice it to say this is not a good school. Academic, sports, you name it, it is simply all around a bad school.

Poor if not absent of challenging academic programs. Due to the previous four block system subjects were just not given their just time. ALL classes should be "weighted". TOO many kids are not challenged at PHS. It over all is a waste of tax payer money. Teachers should get paid by performance review!

We have been in several school districts and Princeton by far is the worse for student/staff relationship. Students (parents too) concerns are swept away with an 'I'm right your wrong attitude'
