U.S. News and World Report has released its annual rankings of the best high schools in the nation — but Haddon Heights High School, where Barrington students continue their education — was not among the rankings.
The “Best High Schools” rankings include an overview of all schools (see Haddon Heights High School here), but only rank the top schools. Haddonfield and Cherry Hill East both cleared the hurdle for overall rankings: Haddonfield was 26th in the state and 437th in the nation, enough for a gold medal, while Cherry Hill East was 38th in the state and 861st nationally, enough for a silver medal.
Haddonfield has a “college readiness index” of 47.7, a math proficiency of 3.4 and an English proficiency of 3.5.
Haddon Heights had a readiness index of 12.7, math proficiency of 3.0 and English proficiency of 3.0. All three grades are near the New Jersey average, according to the report.
Other high schools in the region and their grades (in the same order as above):
Triton: 11.4, 2.9, 3.0
Sterling: 12.9, 2.8, 3.0
