Princeton Public Schools is a comprehensive community public school district that serves students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade from Princeton, New Jersey, United States. Students from Cranbury Township attend the district's high school as part of a sending/receiving relationship.[3] The district administration building is at 25 Valley Road in Princeton. As of the 2014-15 school year, the district and its six schools had an enrollment of 3,390 students and 320.4 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 10.6:1.[1] The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group "I", the second-highest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.[4] Residents of Princeton University's housing complexes for graduate students with families, Butler Apartments,[5] Lawrence Apartments,[6] and Stanworth Apartments,[7] are zoned to the district.[8]
