Newsweek recently released their ranking of the top high schools in the nation. The list is dedicated to identifying the schools that do the best job of preparing their students for University. The criteria used to create the list include graduation rates, percentage of students who carry on to post-secondary, as well as average scores on the SATs and advanced placement exams. Naturally, technical and specialty schools performed best. These are the schools that utilize selective enrollment throughout their areas.
We’re proud to announce that three Jersey Shore high schools in our very own Monmouth County made the cut. The Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune Township, the Biotechnology High School in Freehold and the High Technology High School in Lincroft were all ranked with the top 20.
