We are proud to announce that this year Westwood Regional ranked 56th among 316 School Districts in the state of New Jersey.
How the rankings are compiled
Data for New Jersey Monthly’s biennial ranking of the state’s public high schools were obtained from the state Department of Education’s most recent New Jersey School Report Card (covering the 2006-2007 school year). Special-education, vocational-technical schools, and schools lacking report card data were excluded (see note, next page).
Monmouth University’s Polling Institute analyzed the data by first standardizing individual indicator scores so that small differences did not have a disproportionate impact on the ranking but that large differences were not minimized in the relative scores. These indicators were grouped into three categories. The summary scores for each category were added together to arrive at the final overall score and ranking.
