Hoboken High gets Bronze distinction

12/6/2008:

U.S. News and World Report recently completed their Annual National High School review.

Did you know that Hoboken was honored as a “bronze” award recipient? Hoboken High School was one of 21 other high schools in New Jersey to receive such a distinction. The analysis was done by School Evaluation Services (SES), who developed the methodology and compiled the analysis. At schoolmatters.com (see below), SES provides one of the largest, most easily searchable collections of education data ever available.

What was the criteria?

“In its second year, America’s Best High Schools has again identified the country’s top- performing high schools. The goal of the project remains the same: provide a clear, unbiased picture of how well public high schools serve all of their students – from the highest achieving to the lowest achieving – in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.

Analysts at SchoolMatters developed the America’s Best High School project for special publication in U.S. News & World Report.

This year’s list recognizes more than 1,900 of the best high schools nationwide using three categories of distinction: gold, silver and bronze. New this year, the list also recognizes 17 schools as “Honorable Mention” schools. These are schools that achieved high levels of college readiness, but only partially met the rest of the criteria for inclusion.”

(Hoboken met the criteria except college readiness)

Have no fear we now have “HOLA”.
Jack Raslowsky the unlicensed / uncertified, hired by Roberts Hoboken School Superintendant with his sidekick the trash mouth (as heard using profanity on public television77) BOE president Rhodes – Kerns will solve all problems
with “HOLA”. FYI – Just a reminder you were hired to come up programs.
Our students and taxpayers deserve better.

this school gets an award when over 15% of the students ar NOT proficient iin math and reading? and what is the def. of “proficient”…able to read the instructions on a acratch-off lottery ticket? i suspect the bar has been lowered, again and again. and the best part of this sham award is that despite the fraudulent scores the HHS staff submits and their games with the numbers of students attending each grade, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF SCHOOLS WORSE THAN HHS. no wonder the fast food corps hire illegals, at least they can read spanish.

Congratulations on the progress and we need to continuing working on this. At 184th place out of 359 NJ high schools, we should continue to do better for our students. Proficiency on the HSPA is necessary to graduate high school. Appears that about 15% may not be graduating. Students have 3 chances to pass and if not successful are eligible for the “Special Review Assessment process” (SRA). We should strive for proficiency and high school graduation.
