Graduating from Old Bridge's public high school in 2019 was a dream. The staff and teachers make you feel at home, and we get other opportunities other high schools don't like the Disney trip. As a community, when there are football games, we celebrate the "pink out" game by raising money for breast cancer, the whole town practically comes as a current student, graduate, family, doesn't matter who you are. The field is covered in pink, we throw pink powder in the air for breast cancer, and support one another. As working as a waitress since the past summer, meeting the people in my town that I have never met before is just a highlight of my day. The bonds I create and how generous these people are is amazing. If you ever go out in public, most of the time a stranger will give you a soft smile because Old Bridge is such a caring town. When I grow up, I for sure want my kids to get the same experience or even better then I had by living in Old Bridge.

Old Bridge Township is a fantastic suburb to raise a family. With great public and private schools, your family will be able to receive a great education in a safe area. It is also only an hour commute into NYC and Jersey City, for those who want to get away from the city life, without leaving their job!
Old Bridge Township is a community oriented town. They offer a lot of fun things to do to keep the community active. The public schools are great and all the neighbors are great. We have a lot of parent involvement in the school system. They offer a lot of recreation programs for the township kids and the cost is great! We have a great library and police department. Our township council is amazing and really work hard for the people of Old Bridge. Old Bridge is a great town to raise children! I love it here in my town and have some great neighbors!
