Bridgewater-Raritan High School East opened its doors in September 1966.  In addition to their high school years, the class of '74 attended "East" as sixth graders during the 1967-'68 school year, prior to the arrival of seniors.  East quickly established a reputation for athletic excellence, earning group state championships in a variety of sports.  The Minutemen's proudest accomplishment was the "Forgotten Dynasty" of Bridgewater-Raritan High School football, among the great achievements in Bridgewater-Raritan sports history.  Undefeated records of 9-0-0 in the 1969, '70 and '71 seasons contributed to a 34-game winning streak, the longest in the state of New Jersey at the time.  In fulfilling its mission of academic excellence, East sent many of its graduates to elite colleges and universities.  Most of the nearly 330 students that celebrated commencement exercises on June 19, 1974 had attended school together since kindergarten at either Finderne or Martinsville elementary schools.  Since consolidation of its high schools in 1995, the former High School East now serves as the Bridgewater-Raritan School District's consolidated Middle School.
