You might also try school matters here or the NJ state department of education rankings here. Hope the links help.

Hi:
If you go to this link, http://www.shannonaronson.com/Schools/, you can check every school district in the state, and compare them.


Additionally, NJ Monthly Magazine just came out with their 2010 school report. Here's a link to that.http://njmonthly.com/sections/towns_and_schools/

This may be on the fluffy side but it is clearly written and focuses on New Jersey and that is the NJ Monthly magazine. The school report usually comes out early in the year @ February. Keep an eye out for it or check it out at the library. Generally, the ratings don't change that drastically from one year to the next.

Most websites that provide "school report cards" provide you with information that is mostly obvious and "fluff."  The best source for information on schools in NJ is http://education.state.nj.us/rc/rc08/index.html.  Every public school in the state must supply the DOE with the same type of information and the criteria remain constant from year to year.  When they change, it is obvious but all the schools are on a level playing field at that time.  The reports contain information about class size, budget, statewide testing, advanced placement classes, the faculty, mobility (what percentage of the population moves in and out of the school in any given year) and drop-out rates as well as a host of other bits of useful information. 

You should check with your local agent for persons at the Local Board level.

All the best,

Hi there - you'll find helpful information by accessing the NJ School Report Card available for 2007, and soon to be updated for 2008:

Good luck,

Weve always found Great Schools to be an excellent website for researching schools.  The link is http://www.greatschools.net.  Just click on the tab "Research and Compare" and you get a drop down list of every state.
