Lawrenceville is an elite, preparatory boarding school for students in the 9th-12th grades. By combining an academic program rivaled only by peer-schools Exeter, Andover, and Choate with a more relaxed environment that emphasizes developing a well-rounded personality through participation in athletics and the arts, Lawrenceville produces graduates who are uniquely suited to succeed in the world.

A Lawrenceville education is characterized by time spent debating around a Harkness table, hanging out with friends during Parietals, and cheering at House football games. No one gets through their four years at the school without visits to TJ's and Fedoras. Trips to crash parties at nearby Princeton University are equally important.
My son had a choice between Exeter, Andover, Choate, and Lawrenceville, but he went with Lawrenceville because he didn't want to commit suicide.

Contrary to the previous definition, The Lawrenceville School is not half bad. Located between NYC and Philli and 10 minutes away from princeton, there's more to do here than say, Watertown Conn (location of Taft) or Pottstown, PA. (location of Hill)We have top notch academics, hot history teachers, and a kickass lax team. Instead of dorms, we have houses, making it easier to sneak in and out after hours. Chevy Chase preforms live every year and so does Seamus Haney. Don't know who that is? (hint: he won a nobel prize) LOOK IT UP ASSHOLE. We had a stripper come to school meeting last year and this year's senior prank made the papers. So basically, for all you new englanders out there, we're just as smart and have much more fun than you do- and you think we're not preppy? Our boys squash team won nationals three years running. If you still think we're not elitist enough, we don't want you.
Choate Kid: damnit we are so bad at sports, not like Lawrenceville

Andover Kid: god our teachers are so ugly, not like Lawrenceville's

Deerfield kid: can we get a stripper to come to school like Lawrenceville did?

A small town in Mercer County New Jersey located very close to Princeton. Home to the elite Lawrenceville School as well as quaint eateries such as TJ's and Peggy Sue's.

The best prep school in the U.S.
Choate Kid: Your go to Lawrenceville? It was my top choice, but I got rejected.

Deerfield Kid: Mine too. The location is so much better.

Taft Kid: Ha well your school actually has things to do on the weekend, so you can't always be at home.

NOT a school, but a TOWN that has a few schools in it. Lawrenceville (Lawrence) does not consist completely of over-privileged, rude, and unwelcome prep-kids (as previous definitions may suggest). Lawrence High School, Notre Dame High School, and Lawrenceville Prep all inhabit the township of Lawrence (naturally sparking rivalry). Each school offers different views toward learning...

Lawrenceville (formerly Maidenhead), is a town that acts as a buffer between Trenton and Princeton, NJ. This creates a wonderful mixture of races, religions, and social classes. It's NOT Ewing or Trenton, but it's not exactly Princeton either... IT'S JUST RIGHT

What can I say? I have lived in Lawrence my entire life and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I could have gone to any one of the High Schools mentioned above (yes, L-Prep), but I chose LHS because its a great school and it teaches you something that none of the other schools can. (what that is, is up for you to figure out).

With NYC about 1 hour away by train, Philly roughly an hour away by car, and the shore calling you... Its hard to complain.

PS: I know some people who go to Lawrence Prep, THEY'RE nice... OTHERS on the other hand, need to learn to respect the locals and remember that THEY are the trespassers.

ND-kids come from all over (usually PA)
LP-all over the world and Lawrenceville
Rick- "I can't step foot on Lawrence Prep School grounds without getting harassed by the kids"

Greg- "It's ok, they know nothing about Lawrenceville"
