There are some really good teachers who are dedicated. Also good choice of clubs, extra curricular activities. The school has also a lot of Asian kids who are very driven and that is biggest reason for the academic success of the school, not the teachers. Also a few teachers are unjustly hard on students

School has instilled great character in teachers which is passed down to students. Work ethic and character are all taught in JP. There are zero discipline problems in JP. There is zero crime in North edison nj.

Overall a very competitive school. Great academics and high curriculum. Students excel in the maths and the sciences.

My problem is they cater to certain kinds of students, if you are a blue ribbon school district then your concern should be the well being of ALL students not just the ones that are already equipped because the parents keep them in tutoring all year around. They are quick to classify the African american and Caucasian students. I don't agree with that, it appears that teaching is at a minimal and testing kids is at an all time high. They use all these test to justify why children are placed in the classes that they're in, SAD.

This is the worse school in the area. Teachers do not want to put any effort on teaching , they simply want kids to learn by themselves by watching the videos or do it at home. This school is not meant for kids. Only robots or kids with supernatural powers can survive. Teachers do not follow the district rules. One of the math teacher at JP Stevens gave benchmark test to students even after the district delayed the test and it was not supposed to be taken on that day. The teachers are not at all helpful.

The school is OK, though nowhere near what I had heard of. My assessment is that the students are responsible for the school reputation. Not the teachers, who seem to have imbibed the bad traits of old fashioned Indian schools without imbibing any of the care, attention and concern for students that a good teaching staff needs. My wife and I'd like to move away from this school district, but my son does not want to. If you are planning to overspend on a city with poor infrastructure only for this school, please don't.
