Our Do It Yourself School Ranking Kit
Realtors are continually being asked to evaluate local schools or suggest where the best schools are located. We're legally not allowed to venture an opinion on the subject lest we be accused of steering buyers to one neighborhood over another. We can point to links that make it easy to research school quality in many different areas.
NJ Monthly has a good site for simple countywide & statewide rankings. More detailed stats can be found in The Star Ledger's annual school Report Card. The gold standard for detailed info is the NJ Department of Education website.
Slightly different criteria may result in different conclusions from each source.
Make sure that the year covered is the latest available. (Currently, it's the 2005-06 year)
