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:)

Bridgewater is a large town in the center of a lot. It's made for the growing family, so growing up there was a good experience. There really isn't anything I would change!
