I had attended Clinton Twp. Middle School before going to North. My experience at CTMS was above average, and overall fantastic. The school was clean, very safe, well run, and a very fun experience! Then, I go to high school at North Hunterdon. There have been pictures surfacing of dead rodents in bathrooms. The upstairs bathroom is absolutely corroded and disgusting. It is absolutely disgraceful. Sometimes in class (basically all classrooms) something is broken (such as a heater, smart board, or any chair/desk). The maintenance in this building is horrible. With all the money in the community, you would think they would make renovations to provide a clean & comfortable environment for students. This is outrageous! Also, how could we be sure that the cafe that cooks our food is sanitary, when you cannot keep up the maintenance on bathrooms! Since the beginning of the year, on one of the bathroom stalls there is a wall of rainbow colored gum. There is lipstick writing everywhere, and everything is completely unsanitary. The only bathrooms that are a little cleaner are the ones near the entrances to the school, to maybe make a good impression on parents & other visitors?
