I have grown up in Old Bridge all my life. It is very family friendly as there are 12 elementary schools, 2 Middle Schools and 1 High School. I am still close friends with peers from all three school levels. There are many sports activities to participate in as well as many parks and even a dog park!

Old Bridge is a community that values education and character. There are always events and volunteer opportunities to get involved with, while the local schools offer a quality education and a support system for the students. Furthermore, the town is small, so you'll likely to meet a familiar face eventually.
I am a current student attending Old Bridge High School and I strongly say that I love old bridge community. Majority of the people in Old Bridge are very friendly and make you feel welcomed. It's also a very safe town with police officers everywhere. There are also very few areas in Old Bridge where there are no buildings/store, making the town seem occupied and lively. There's always something to do in Old Bridge considering the endless stores all around. Old Bridge High School is also a very good public school for kids to attend. The school spirit the school has is amazing and the teachers and staff are extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend others to move to Old Bridge, New Jersey
