Morristown High School Ranked No. 75 in State
NJ Monthly bi-annual poll dropped MHS nine slots from 2010.
Morristown High School was ranked 75th for high schools in New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
MHS dropped nine spots from 66 out of 328 schools in 2010 in the bi-annual poll.
NJ Monthly uses information from the state Department of Education to develop its rankings, which only take into account public schools in the state. Student performance and student outcomes were the most heavily weighted to determine the rankings, followed by school environment.
New Providence High School, in Union County, was ranked No. 1. High-ranking Morris County schools included Kinnelon High School (5), Madison High School (6), Mountain Lakes High School (7), Chatham High School (20) and Parsippany Hills High School (23). Thomas Jefferson Arts Academy, in Elizabeth, was ranked last.
This isn't MHS's first recent accolade. It was ranked among the top 1,000 high schools in the nation earlier this year, at No. 953, according to an annual Newsweek poll.
