Old Bridge High School

Old Bridge High School
Do The Right Thing

For nearly 16 years, Old Bridge High School has experienced a transforming school culture that was galvanized by the merger of the former Cedar Ridge and Madison Central High Schools to become Old Bridge High School East and West Campuses. Our physical transformation culminated in the fall of 2005 when two campuses became one.

Since our unification, the culture of Old Bridge High School continues to evolve. In the Fall of 2012, Old Bridge High School once again underwent a vibrant change. The creation of the Ellen McDermott Grade Nine Center has given us the unique opportunity to create one of the most dynamic high schools in the New Jersey.
Administrators, teachers, parents, and students alike are fulfilling their responsibility to shepherd the flourishing renaissance in one of the largest high schools in New Jersey.

In the 2014-15 school year Old Bridge High School solidified its reputation as a school rich in academic diversity. A leadership team of 5 administrators and 8 subject area supervisors oversee more than 300 staff and nearly 3,100 students who are enrolled in more than 180 course offerings including numerous Advanced Placement courses for students seeking the rigors of a competitive post-secondary education. The school offers programs in Industrial and Design Technology that give our students an opportunity to receive certification in trades like cosmetology and automotive mechanics. The National Institute certifies our automotive program for Automotive Excellence.

Our athletic program boasts 30 varsity sports with nearly 60 teams in total. The program includes both traditional contact sports such as football and individually competitive sports like swimming. In addition, more than 50 extracurricular activities supplement our athletic program for students who seek experience in leadership, business, cultural, and social settings. Our school website, http://oldbridgeschools.org/HighSchool.cfm helps parents, students, and staff, stay informed about all that Old Bridge High School has to offer.

We also have co-curricular programs that enrich the classroom experience of our students. Our visual and performing arts program affords students the opportunity to highlight their talents in musicals, dramas, and concerts. Through cooperative educational internships in the business and health professions, students gain valuable experience found in no book or classroom. Students interested in media studies, broadcast journalism or technology can explore their interests in our fully equipped television studio, computer graphics, or computer assisted drawing labs. Students in this program are actively engaged in broadcasting programs of community interest on local cable television. Our Air Force Junior ROTC program exposes students to leadership, civic responsibility, and aviation history.

Continuing in the 2014-2015 school year, Old Bridge High School maintained its partnership with Family Connection from Naviance. Family Connection from Naviance allows students to independently research colleges and universities, examine possible career choices, and maintain a comprehensive resume to help build their academic and professional opportunities after Old Bridge High School.

For those students eager to get a glimpse of life after high school before they actually graduate, Old Bridge High School has partnerships with Fairleigh Dickinson University and Middlesex County College. Students can take courses at these institutions, fulfill requirements for high school, and receive college credit.

We are proud of our school, confident in the direction we are moving, and welcome your feedback as Old Bridge High School continues to evolve as an extraordinary place to learn and work!
