BRIDGEWATER, NJ - For the second consecutive year, Bridgewater-Raritan High School has been recognized as one of the best communities for music education, by the NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education.

The designation is given to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. To qualify, districts must answer detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music programs and more.

“This shows the importance the community shows for music,” superintendent of schools Russell Lazovick said. “We thank the board for its continued support.”

“This is an academic program, and I thank everyone,” he added. “I hope the district continues to make an investment in the arts.”
