Hoboken High gets Bronze distinction
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.”
