I love going to Bridgewater Raritan High School. We are extremely diverse, and the teachers and staff provide a very warm learning environment. You are able to easily choose the caliber of your classes, and make your learning experience flexible! Bridgewater itself is a very lively, always busy town. You can find grocery stores, drug stores, and retail stores around every corner, and everything is quite easily accessible. There are not many "shady" spots in town, and we are also pretty green and environmentally friendly! Wouldn't wanna live anywhere else in New Jersey:)

I liked growing up there and living in a cul-de-sac and going to the public schools! I also really like the nature and how my house has the woods right behind it so as a child, it was really fun to play outside.
I appreciate that there is a multitude of open space between the houses and the area is relatively safe. The school district is diverse and the teachers educate the students well. There is a special program in the district called the Academically Independent program, which starts from second grade to fifth grade. It accelerates one year and after fifth grade, those students who have tested into the AI program are automatically in all E (Enrichment) programs (Mathematics, Science, LAL, Social Studies).
