It’s back-to-school time, and parents have another reason to celebrate — a recent report shows that New Jersey has the best school systems in all of the United States.
The study was conducted by a finance website called Wallethub, and used data from a number of sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Educational Statistics and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Studying 12 factors, including student-teacher ratios, math and reading test scores, dropout rates and bullying incidents, the website found that New Jersey had the best overall rank. In addition, it also earned top honors in the “School System Quality Rank” category and ranked second in the “Education Output & Safety Rank.”
The study also concluded that New Jersey ranked fourth in math test scores, and tied for fourth in reading test scores. The state also ranked in the top five in lowest pupil-to-teacher ratio and safety.
The Sue Adler team is proud to work with communities that have contributed to the state’s academic excellence. Millburn High School, for instance, is consistently ranked #1 in the state, as well as in the top 5 of all high schools in the country. Likewise, Columbia High School in Maplewood is known as one of the most academically progressive high schools in the state of New Jersey, and has been recognized for its academic excellence with a Blue Ribbon award from the US Department of Education.

And congratulations to all the hard-working students (and parents) for this honor!
