    "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."

    "The school provides ample oppurtunities for students who are willing to take advantage of them. The students are very college-oriented which creates a highly competative environment. Students are segregated by academic ability into levels 2 (regular), 1 (accelerated), and honors (AP classes). The level 2 classes are largely low-income students from subsidized housing and hilltop, while level 1 and honors classes have more affluent students. The school offers a variety of extracurriculars including a nationally recognized band, marching band, oddesy of the mind, model UN, and key club. It's volleyball, soccer, and tennis teams are among the best in the state, while the football team is one of the worst. There are more than a hundred AP scholars. Most of the students will go to Rutgers NB, while the top 50 students will be admitted to top 20 schools. The school is primarily asian and indian who focus on math and science. The school is fairly crowded and 7am traffic in the morning is aweful. Also, the school gives out more permits than there are parking spots, so parking can be tricky."

    "The school is extremely competitive and those who struggle academically or have special needs would be better served elsewhere. The student body, while diverse, is primarily comprised of Indians, with Asians and Jews in the minority. The students are hard-working and self-motivated. There are a lot of extracurricular activities offered. We have the best band in the state, and one of the best math teams in the country. There are tons of AP classes and students discuss SATs/College incessantly. Some of the faculty is top-notch while others are simply waiting to retire and tell us they get paid whether we learn or not. With over 2000 students in a building designed for half that many, classes sometimes feel overcrowded. The top 10% of the class go to the Ivy's. About 1/2 of the senior class goes to Rutgers New Brunswick."
