Newton HS ranks among Top 100 high schools in NJ

Newton HS ranks among Top 100 high schools in NJ

New Jersey Monthly released its biannual analysis, and for the first-time, Newton HS earned a place in the Top 100 among 337 public high schools. The criteria were as follows:

Student/faculty ratio
Number of AP/IB subjects offered
Percentage of students in grades 11-12 taking at least one AP/IB test (this was mislabeled as it actually reported the percentage of juniors and seniors who took at least one AP/IB course)
Percentage of students taking at least one Visual & Performing Arts class
Percentage of students scoring 1550 or better on SAT
Percentage of AP tests resulting in scores of 3+ (IB = 4+)
Four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate; and
Percentage of graduates enrolled in college 16 months after high school graduation

What’s especially impressive is that NHS was mentioned specifically in the online article as the “fastest-rising school” among the Top 100, moving from 168th in 2014 to 99th this year.  This is truly a preK-12th grade achievement that should be celebrated by all stakeholders.
