New Jersey School Rankings

New Jersey Public K-12 School Rankings are based on data from the New Jersey Statewide Assessment Reports provided by the New Jersey Department of Education. There are two sets of rankings: (i) The Standard Rankings, and (ii) The Customized Rankings.

  • The Standard Rankings are based on the following:

      Kids
    • Elementary Schools: The percentage of students at Advanced Proficiency in Language Arts and Math for fourth graders.
    • Middle Schools: The percentage of students at Advanced Proficiency in Language Arts, Math and Science for eighth graders.
    • High Schools: The percentage of students at Advanced Proficiency in Language Arts and Math for eleventh graders.

    You have the option of (i) Ranking all schools in the State of New Jersey (choose "All Counties" in the toolbar to the left), (ii) Comparing individual counties (choose "County Vs. County"), and (iii) Comparing all schools in a given county (choose, for example, "Bergen" County). To view FREE public school rankings from a prior year, simply click on the "Rank" button on the toolbar to the left. The most recent rankings are available for subscribers only. Subscription fee is $8.33/month (1-year term). Sign up here.


  • The Customized Rankings (Subscribers Only) are based on the following:

      Learning
    • Elementary Schools: Can choose any or all of the followings: Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Can choose either Advanced Proficiency, Proficiency, or Partial Proficiency.
    • Middle Schools: Can choose any or all of the followings: Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Can choose either Advanced Proficiency, Proficiency, or Partial Proficiency.
    • High Schools: Can choose any or all of the followings: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Can choose either Advanced Proficiency, Proficiency, or Partial Proficiency.

    With the Customized Ranking, you can choose any or all of the counties. Subscription fee is $8.33/month (1-year term). Sign up here.


Notes:
  • The results of the redesigned NJ ASK 5-8 Language Arts Literacy (LAL) and mathematics cannot be compared with those of previous assessments due to changes in test design. In 2008, grades five through eight assessments were redesigned as NJ ASK 5-8. Grades five through seven of the new ASK 5-8 replaced the ASK 5-7 administered in 2006 and 2007. For grade eight, ASK 8 replaced GEPA marking 2007 as the last GEPA administration; however, the ASK 8 science test design remains unchanged from GEPA. It is important to note that the redesigned NJ ASK 5-8 for LAL and mathematics differ significantly in terms of item type, passage length, and testing time. Therefore direct comparisons of student performance across these tests are inappropriate.
  • Grade level distributions are not consistent throughout New Jersey. For example, fifth graders are in elementary schools in some areas; but in other areas, they are in middle or junior high schools. This site classifies elementary schools as those with fifth graders, middle schools as those with eighth graders, and high schools as those with eleventh graders. Some schools may be classified in more than one category.
  • Results presented here are for General Education students only (for 2000 to 2002) or All Students (2003 and 2004). Results for Special Education and Limited English Proficiency students are not provided.
