I went to princeton high school a long time ago when it was called wilberville. I loved going to wilberville. The teachers where so nice to me, I was in a cage most of the time, and rotten kiwis where thrown at my head if I spoke out of line. Wow was it a great school. My favorite thing to do was eat tater tots and put pudding in my shoes. Prinecton acedemically was quite maxius breakfandish. I love priceton. Go Druids!
I am currently a Freshman at Princeton. At first, my parents were a little worried about me attending Princeton schools because of their reputation, but it's really not all that bad. Sure, there are a few fights every now and then, but not much more than other schools. Princeton is an extremely diverse school where pretty much anyone can find somewhere to fit in, unlike smaller schools. I am in honors classes and find the teachers to be very understanding and realistic if you just give them a chance. There is some favoritism of the sports over the arts, especially towards the football and basketball teams, but not to a great extent. I do think that the administration only focuses on those who aren't behaving, or those who used to not behave and are now, leaving the kids who are behaving ignored. But teachers are fun-loving yet still care about your education. They also have great math and science programs in both the high and middle school. I was able to take algebra I in 8th grade and will be taking algebra II as a sophomore. Also, teachers don't talk down to you, and treat you with respect. I really love this school. I was able to fit into this school, when other schools failed.
I had 2 sons that graduted from Princeton. They weren't brains but never up until the AM doing homework. They came home & just got it finished! The school prepared them and now graduates of Ohio State University. I had a great experience with their counselor... we had the agreement that they could not schedule classes..they were all scheduled by me. I made sure they were prepared...no wasted time with GPA puffers. They had great and mediocre teachers but the class content is what you make it.
i love princeton high school. Everyone here knows how to have a good time and the teachers make sure no one is left behind.
I'm currently a junior at Princeton High School. It has its upsides and its downsides. It has a lot to offer. The AP and IB programs are some of the best around (I personally love it and manage to have a social life.) The extracurricular activities are varied and offer something for everyone. The sports teams get more attention than some of the other more academically based clubs and activities. Princeton gets a bad rep but it's really not that bad. There are some fights but I've never personally felt threatened or targeted. It has its dark sides but all in all it's a pretty good school. The teachers are generally pretty good and actually care. The principals however offer no sort os special attention for those who are not failing or fighting frequently. They don't even know half of the student body. They're trying though. It's a good school though.
My oldest son graduated in 2008, he received a full academic scholarship which the school did not help us find although the school College counselor I fell is second to none. The High school was mediocre, my son was not all that happy with it, alot of politics involving the sports programs but I am happy to say that since the new changes in the administration that things are on the upswing and seem to be getting better. I still have two to put through the system so lets wait and see, but things are much better especially the leadership in that they are teaming up to work jointly to ensure success for the students, a bug change over the past years.
Hii im a student a princeton high school, currently a freshman. This school is amazing,but i agree with this mom i've stayed up till 2 a.m. doing home work and its horrible. I wish teachers would understand we have a social life and we actually want a good nights sleep.I've talked to oh 100 or so students and not one has a had a good nights sleep in weeks. Were all tired and we hate it, we just want less home work it's too much but the teachers expect so much out of us. Any parent rreading this you have to understand we want to be normal we want to hang out with friends,but dont yell at us when we have a c in an honors class bc honors is hard trust me i no
I am a current studet at princeton and the teachers are great!!! The principals and staff are all on board and love newness and innovative ideas. People give princeton a bad rep but overall i believe we are the best in southern ohio we have great diversity, numerous extracuriculars, and AP,IB, and Honors courses in just about everything. our music and art programs are state of ar with about 8 sound proff rooms. our athletics are great all around from football to soccer to basketball and baseball even to debate we are the best! I love this school with all my heart and i just dont understand why anyone would not.
I'm a parent and graduate of this school and I think you can get a great eduction at this school. The curriculum is robust - it up to the student to take advantage of it. Princeton has a diverse community; that is a positive. When I graduated - I was very prepared for college. My son is currently a sophomore and loves it. It offers a variety of sports programs, its music department is fantastic, great art programs, and its computer and industrial arts are fantastic. The Princeton enthusiasm is high - Go Princeton Vikings!
I had previously entered a positive rating for this school under (I have three boys in the PHS system), my oldest is now a Junior. Unfortunately I would no longer recommend this school. Teachers leave alot to be desired, as do the transparent or invisible assistance from the faculty and administration. The AP and IB programs are great if you don't mind your child staying up till 1A.M. or 2 A.M. every night to finish their homework, and having no social life to speak of.
I have three boys attending Princeton schools, my oldest is a soph. at the high school, he is in Marching band, and a few sports, he seems very happy, as the matter of fact we are selling our home and he does not want to leave. The academics are great, my son has a 3.91 GPA, he was in the honors although we took him out due to the homework lasting till midnight or later every night. With Ap or IB the students who complete will get an education of a lifetime, There are excellent opportunities for scholarship, this school prepares the kids for college and life, this school is what the individual makes it, as in any large school there are opportunities both good and bad. Our opinion on safety and securrity is that it is top shelf, there are very few fights and discipline actions are swift. Go Vikes!
As a 2003 graduate I have to say I cannot think of any other school that is better. Princeton prepares you for college both academically and socially. Princeton offers everything from a strong band program to computer programming. There are also a number of trade classes, too. I was able to participate in a number of sports but academics were always emphasized as coming first. I will be honest and say that the adminastration does have some issues but the teachers are beyond compare. Even with advanced curriculum such as AP and International Baccalaureate, it was the great teachers that made the difference in both lower and higher level courses. This combined with the social diversity gave me real world learning. Safety was never an issue either. Security did its job and I always felt safe. Princeton is a school filled with opportunities and one can easily succeed.
When I left Princeton High School in 1998, the school had just began to turn for the worst. I disagree with anyone who says that there is not a general problem and try to blame certain students from what they deem 'problem' areas. There is certainly a difference in treatment between students from different communities. There are many good teachers at the school, but (as is the case everywhere) there are some bad apples. Social prejudice is a real problem here.
As a parent and teacher of Princeton High School, I am very fortunate that my three daughters have graduated with not only the best education, but the life learning experiences that will make them prepared for life. The two who are already in college had all the tools they needed to be successful at their university. The school is safe, if it wasn't, why would I teach and allow my daughters to attend such a school. All students are given the best education, no matter the level. The low economics of many of our students should have no bearance if a school is safe - that would be a biased statement. The Pride is back in Princeton. Get involved and support Princeton. You'll be glad you did.
It depends on which part of the community that you come from. That is what will determine what type of education you receive at Princeton. Someone needs to take a hard look at what is occurring in that district.
I attended Sharonville Elementary, Princeton Jr. High and Princeton High School (Freshman Year Only). I loved the Princeton City School District and all the schools I attended. I wished I could of graduated from the High School, but had to move to Kentucky with my family. Keep up the great work Princeton! Go Vikings!!
Princeton is a once-great district now in decline. The influx of the low socio-economic scale of residents and lack of the community to emphasize the importance of education in society has crippled this district. So much is given to the lower and upper ends of the education scale that the majority of kids in the middle get left out. The district is facing financial issues yet refuses to trim staff and teachers. The test scores are teetering on academic watch. Excellent hs school principals handcuffed by micro-managing Board of Education and superintendent. Lots of great programs but school safety a real concern. Kids are out of control, and parents won't take any responsibility.
My daughter graduated from the school last year, and my son is a freshman, and I have found that Princeton graduates are better prepared than their peers for college. The quality of the education at Princeton is extremely high, with opportunites for extracurricular activites in sports, music, computers science incredible. Neither of my children have been involved with fights or have ever felt afraid in the building. The teachers and programs are unlike any other high school in our area. Come take a look at the school before you judge.
Princeton High School is great. Yes, there are issues that must we weathered, however the high school and district is one of the most -if not the most- racially and socio-economicly diverse sytem in the country. One of my daughters currently attends the high school. One graduated a short time ago. We often talk about the quality of the high school. By the way, our experience has been: teachers bend over backgrounds to ensure student success. They are responsive to e-mails and voicemails. Very few schools offer a curricula so diverse and so many extra curricular opportunities. We have found all principals to be receptive and involved with indiividual students.
