Old Bridge Township Public Schools is a 42-square mile suburban school district located at the southern end of Middlesex County, in central New Jersey. The district has a total daytime student enrollment of just under 8,600 pupils, and students are housed in a pre-kindergarten annex, eleven elementary schools grades K-5, two middle schools grades 6-8, and a single campus high school with a separate facility for 9th graders. Old Bridge High School ranks among the largest high schools in the state.
Maintaining safe learning environments is our priority. We have embarked on a campaign to strengthen the perimeters of our schools, increase our police manpower, and heighten our threat intelligence gathering. We have a valuable school risk assessment partnership with county and state officials and a collaborative relationship with the Old Bridge Police Department.
The Old Bridge Board of Education is goal oriented and stands by its community-driven Mission 2022 Strategic Plan that focuses on the following areas:
- Excellence in Education
- Facilities & Finance
- The Whole Child
The Old Bridge School District faces numerous challenges as we embark upon our second consecutive school year of state imposed reduced aid. Once again, these tests will inspire Old Bridge to do what we always do; work harder as a unified force. During the 2018-2019 school year, we faced similar financial trials and we still managed to deliver remarkable educational services for the children of Old Bridge. Our students performed at record levels, captured state championships, and made our community proud as they represented Old Bridge all over the globe in the performing arts and world languages.
Old Bridge Township was founded upon rich family traditions and a commitment to community values. Our schools are a reflection of those founding pillars. Through a character driven fabric that is generously woven through our programs in the academics, athletics, and the arts; Old Bridge Township Schools will always be a tremendous source of local pride and global impact! Old Bridge is a community of everyday heroes. Our heroes are found in every neighborhood from Cliffwood Beach to South Old Bridge. Our heroes fill our schools, make sure our students arrive safely to facilities of learning and protect our campuses. Our heroes know the importance of a comprehensive public education. For these reasons, Old Bridge Township Schools are striving to get better and even as we face financial adversity; WE ARE STAYING ALIVE!
Yours for the sake of our children,
David Cittadino, Superintendent
