We are very proud of princeton high school. If my child is in class or we are at a sporting event as a family we always feel safe. The staff really cares about the children and their education. Our coaches not only teach game rules but good sportsmanship. If all schools in our country were in the hands of phs staff we would see better educated and more well rounded young adults .

Princeton is a magnificent school. Since the school is so small it makes us a close knit community. We know almost everyone by name. Growing up with the same kids helps form lifelong friendships. I know I keep in touch with mine. It's a great place to consider if you want your child in a great community.

I love Princeton High School. We have such nice people. And you don't hear about that many fights that happen here. But besides that we are a pretty nice school. If your thinking about entering the princeton area you may want to check in on the school. We have some pretty nice teachers too. Overall I would give my school a excellent star!

It was an absolute joy to attend Princeton High School. Unlike most schools that have large numbers of students, Princeton had a more personable feel. When you were their you didnt feel like a number, everyone knows everyone and treats them like family. I spent 13 years of my life with a special group of people, the class of 2007. We were like brothers and sisters, encouraging one another along and working through any problems we might have had together. The faculty were very helpful and easy to get along with. My favorite staff member would have to be the Biology teacher at Princeton High School. Mr. Greg Godwin always seemed to have time and went the extra mile for anyone in need. I would definitely send my children because I know that they would get a proper education at Princeton High School

I had two daughters graduate from Princeton High School, having entered the school in 8th and 10th grades. We moved from Florida, so the experience of leaving their friends made it less than ideal for them. They quickly found new friends and got along fine. I especially appreciated that they assigned another student to show my older daughter around the high school and help her find her classes. They've become life-long friends. I attended PHS myself and had a pretty good experience.

As an alumni of Princeton High School I wish I still lived in North Carolina. If I did my children would deffinitely go to school there. You got a lot of one on one time with the teachers and they genuinely cared whether you passed or failed.

Being a former student at Princeton, I can honestly say that if i had children, I wouldnt send them anywhere but Princeton. I wouldnt trade my experiences there for anything. Being one of the only k-12 schools left, Princeton is truly unique. Princeton is like a community in itself, and it challenges you acdemically daily. -Tara Smith

This school has not met the expectations that I had when I first moved into the area. This school is very large and unless you have a child that is able to handle a very large class with absolutely no help from any of the staff, they would be best off going to either a different school in the district, or if possible, a private school who is more willing to involve the parents in their childrens' progress.

I have 2 children in primary grades...Both are thriving and enjoying being at Princeton. Being a Princeton alumnus myself, I know first hand how important it is to be involved in a community school. Everyone knows everyone and pays particular attention to how each child is treated by the staff. The curriculum seems to be a little better than the average primary grades in other schools. Values and compassion for one's classmates are among the priorities taught at Princeton. The end of grade testing seems to speak for the caliber of Princeton's teachers and the dedication to each child's personal success. Extracurricular activites are available to each child, regardless of age or financial level. I think the best part of Princeton is how the whole community is involved with each family and especially, each child. I never feel like a stranger.
