This is a great school The parents and teacher are extremely involved with the students. There is a real sense of community here, not found in many large Hunterdon County schools.

I have three children in High Bridge schools Two in special Ed . I have seen my children learn and really love school. The teachers work with the children and they find ways to get through the struggles the student has . My son is now ready for High School and i thank all the teachers that took the time and never gave up on him.

We have experience with the middle school and elementary school. All in all we have had a wonderful educational experience. My one concern is that girls with attention deficit disorder who don't have the hyperactivity has been overlooked in a couple students and they have been labeled lazy. My concern is to make certain parents whose students are struggling investigate all posibilities. Don't assume what the school is saying to be the only possibility. Great special education program, good activities, and outstanding teachers and support staff. Both schools 4 3/4 stars!

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
