New Jersey is home to lots of families who want the best for their kids. That’s why a recent article revealed that many homebuyers are willing to spend extra money or downsize to live in a town with a top ranked school district. Well, now a new report by NJ Monthly revealed exactly which schools in the Garden State are the best.
Their list of the top 337 public high schools out of 662 was published in their new September issue and six Bergen County schools made the top 30 in the state. Glen Rock came in at the number 10 spot, Park Ridge 20, Ramsey 21, Northern Highlands Regional in Allendale 23, Cresskill 26 and Indian Hills in Oakland made the list in the 27th spot.
“It’s not surprising that Bergen County schools topped the list,” Bergen County resident and substitute teacher Suzanne Felter told OMJ. “I’ve been too a lot of schools in the state and you can really tell the difference in terms of education.”
Data for the New Jersey Monthly ranking of the state’s high schools was obtained from the state Department of Education’s most recent New Jersey School Performance Reports, covering the 2014-2015 school year.
