Nobody likes school. Not only did I like Central, they made it worth it. I know that I am ready for college. They have such a wide range of classes, at all different readiness levels. I was able to do what fit for me and that is what made me successful. Polytech allowed me to work in the field I want to go into and really take a close look at it. Every teacher I have had has been so dedicated to teaching me everything they can. I do love summer, but I can't help missing the teachers every year I leave. There is so many good relationships and such a positive environment. The food options are endless, whatever you are craving that day is there! The administration is so nice and helpful and you can go to your counselor for anything. There has never been a problem that can't be solved! Overall, Central works hard to give us as many options as they can and make the school fit to our learning style. I really enjoyed my time here and can't wait to excel in college!

HCRHS was like a home to me, plain and simple. My whole life, I knew I was going to end up going through the end of the K-12 process there, and I was excited for it. The teachers are great, and the school has PLENTY of resources. It has a large student population, of around 3000 students, but that only makes it full of amazing individuals that make me excited to learn about the world around me. Everyone brings their own story with them when they go to school, and HCRHS allows for a way for each person to share it with people that genuinely care. If you are a student getting ready to go here, I would be happy if I were you. And if you are a parent that is anxious for their child to be going here, don't be. HCRHS is an amazing school, you just have to make sure to take advantage of all it has to offer!
Hunterdon Central Regional High School is a great school! Although the classes require lots of hard work, they definitely prepare you for your future in higher education and/or in the work force. The teachers are very nice and passionate. I really like how they push you to be your very best. Also, the sports are awesome at Central! This past year Hunterdon Central won 5+ State Championships. Hunterdon Central has many clubs and there is an extracurricular there for everyone!
