Both West Morris Regional high schools dropped in New Jersey Monthly Magazine’s annual rankings released this week.
Mendham High School had the more drastic decline, slipping from number 26 to 45 year over year, while West Morris Central fell from number 43 to 56.
Factors in the rankings include School Environment, Student Performance, and Student Outcomes, according to the magazine’s methodology. To learn more about the methodology, go here.
The rankings are a result of the 2010-11 school year’s performance.
The monthly rankings also include a category of top schools by district factor group, a socioeconomic classification of schools. West Morris Central, an “I” school, and Mendham High School, a “J” school, both missed the top 10 in this year’s rankings. New Jersey Monthly lumped “I” and “J” schools together.
The top school in that category’s ranking is New Providence, and “I” school, which also topped the overall public high school rankings.
