Bridgewater-Raritan High School Reviews

In general, staff and students are friendly. It has an extremely diverse student class with people of all backgrounds. There are a ton of classes to pick from-genetics to woodshop to AP studio art to family and child classes. There are a ton of clubs and tons of opportunities for getting involved in athletics, music, and other extracurriculars. The teachers vary a lot. Some teachers are amazing and will work extremely hard for their students to succeed while some are the opposite-they don't care one bit about how their students do. The food is mediocre at best.

I am graduating BRHS this year and I have to say it has been my best school experience yet! I came from NY to NJ and Bridgewater High School has made me feel at home. Everyone is very sweet and the teachers really care about your grades and what they can do to help you succeed. The school is very into sports and after school activities and it makes the school year so much fun.
My high school experience was everything that I intended it to be. I was very involved and wouldn't change anything about that. I also played field hockey and lacrosse all four years of high school. My academics always came first but I knew how to balance my time. All the teachers and other administration was very helpful with any issue that I might of came across! Overall such a great school district.
