I am phillipsburg alumni, and I believe this is a great school to attend. As with any small town school there is cattyness, and everyone knows everyone's business, but you won't find a school not like that in any surrounding county. Also I felt very safe and I believe I got one of the best educations I could have gotten. When I went to college I felt completely prepared and not left behind what so ever. The councelor at Phillipsburg is very good at preparing seniors for life after high school. Education wise I believe we are above average and I would recommend this school to anyone. Trust me i attended the school for 4 years.
