US News has just released the top New Jersey High Schools and seven of our Midtown Direct communities have high schools ranked in the Top 50 – that’s an incredible statistic! What an accomplishment and source of pride for our towns.
After all, the quality of the town school system is often a very important deciding factor for most buyers. There are 4 criteria for which the rankings were computed.
- Student/Teacher Ratio
- College Readiness – based on the percentages of 12th graders who tested and passed AP exams. The maximum college readiness index is 100.
- Math – a measure of student performance on this subject of the state exit exam.
- English – a measure of student performance on this subject of the state exit exam.
And, here’s how we placed….
#7 – Chatham High School
#12 – Millburn High School
#19 – Westfield High School
#25 – Summit High School
#29 – Madison High School
#31 – New Providence High School
