"Inside Jersey's annual Top Performing Public High Schools ranking adds a new tracking category to the mix this year — arts education. For the first time, the state Department of Education looked at the integration of arts into school curriculum, making New Jersey the only state in the country to track student participation in the arts. So, we included this statistical profile in our ranking, with schools listed by county. This year’s formula relies on three factors: a combined SAT score, a composite High School Proficiency Assessment score and a combined arts participation score." http://www.nj.com/inside-jersey/index.ssf/2014/08/new_jerseys_2014_top_performing_public_high_schools_for_academics_the_arts.html
