What Watchung Hills means to Gavin:
To me Watchung Hills is a place of endless opportunities. Students have the ability to choose from a multitude of clubs and sports to create their own high school experience. At Watchung Hills there is a place for everyone and that’s what’s so special about it. I’m glad to have been able to try so many new things and discover what it is that I want to do moving forward in my life. Looking back at high school I don’t remember the tests and projects, but the people I met and the experiences I had.
Carrie is a member of: Marching Band (9, 10, 11, 12) Model UN, Physics League Math League Dance (9, 10, 11, 12)
What Watchung Hills means to Carrie:
Ever since I learned that education is compulsory through age 16, I dreamed of attending Watchung Hills Regional High School. Two years into high school I turned 16 and asked myself: “What am I still doing here?” – beyond the fact that I need to get a high school education. Since my first day of band camp freshman year, Watchung Hills has represented friends and community to me. The kind and supportive family I found in marching band has been by my side throughout high school, and the ridiculous memories we’ve made by antagonizing wasps and swimming in 30-degree weather are the kinds of things I’ll actually remember about high school. Although most of my time is spent in class or doing homework, the friends and communities I’ve found here are what Watchung Hills really means to me.
