My experience in Old Bridge High School was fantastic. Yes, every school has positives and negatives to it. Old Bridge High School is small for the amount of students who attend there, but the students make it work, as well as the teachers. The community is well structured and works together to accomplish goals. The teachers are warm, friendly, and always there in the times of need when I needed to talk to someone. It is astonishing how every student knows one another because the high school has 3,000 plus students attending it. I cannot complain about Old Bridge High School because I learned and challenged myself to see what I was capable of. When Old Bridge High School puts its mind to something, we obtain our goals; there is no and or but. Yes, the school is overwhelming because the hallways are overcrowded, but when you are in a community so big, it becomes a family. You never feel as if the day is dragging on. Truth is, the school passes by because you are having fun.
I transferred to Old Bridge High my junior year and I loved it. So many new, friendly faces. The teachers were all amazing, you could tell they love their jobs and really want to see their students succeed. There were so many extra curricular activities and clubs for the students to join and every week there would be something to look forward to for entertainment during AND after school. One of my personal favorites is Battle of the Classes! And what enjoyable year for seniors with things such as homecoming, the Disney senior trip, PROM which was BEAUTIFUL and Graduation which was so exciting, heart warming and memorable. Makes so much sense that they are a National School of Character, because they do everything to make their students happy.
