    "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."

    "Be very careful of the area. Be careful of who you allow your child to be around. Do not feed into the stereotype that some people are better than others. Do not feed into that the people on the "hill" are all poor. Just focus on your studies and the clubs that the school has to offer and you will enjoy your 4 years at JP."

    "Only reason this school overcomes mediocrity is because very high parent involvement, due to largely asian enrollment. Teacher quality is awful, sometimes they are even harmful, and counter-productive. School counselling staff is extremely impersonal and discouraging. It was a mistake moving to N. Edison neighbourhood"

    "I'm a senior at JP. Overall, the school is pretty good. Most of the teachers are pretty good and the administration is reasonable. The school feels overcrowded during passing time and class sizes are around 25. Students here are driven to qualify for a good college making the academics competitive. Our band is the best in the state and recognized nationally. Most of the students are Indian, though of varying background. There is a noticeable difference between those bussed in from hilltop and those living in new 3 car garage homes being dropped off in Porsche sedans. Most of the students are going to go to Rutgers, but there are some going to the Ivys."
