    "JP is at best a mixed bag. Make no doubt about it, there are plenty of positives for this school. Many teachers are driven and the student body is extremely dedicated towards achieving a successful graduation and a successful career. However there are multiple issues here. First, for every 1 good teacher i get, there are at least 2-3 others that I don't show as much respect, typically since they are out to punish, not teach students. Second, the building is over 50 years old, and the school is handling over twice the capacity of students. Third, the school administration is not the best out there, typically bearing a short fuse for minor academic/disciplinary violations. Fourth, just like many other schools, this school doesnt seem to teach morals. Rather than accentuating integrity, grace, and a sense of righteousness, its all about embracing change. Its all about satisfying selfish motives, creating a world in which YOU are comfortable in. Again, make no doubt about it, this is a much better school than any others in the region. However, don't become infatuated with it. This school doesnt replace proper parenting and moral upbringings."

    "John.P. Stevens is one of the most diverse school maybe in entire NJ. This is my last year at JP and I have never witnessed any race issues over here. We have one of the best teachers who actually care about students rather then crying for salary or complaining about other teachers. I won't be exaggerating even if I say we HAVE COLLEGE LEVEL TEACHERS. High school is once in a lifetime experience. I am glad the I am a part of one of the best school in NJ as per Washington post."

    "Parents need to become more involved if they are concerned about where their taxes are going. It's hard to stay competitive when the school budget gets voted down year after year. JPS is an excellent school with some of the best teachers in the area and they manage to not only stay competetive but to lead the pack. If you're not willing to be a partner in your child's education, then you shouldn't complain."
