Just in time to head back to school, Inside
Jersey, a magazine produced by the Star
Ledger released a report on how area high schools are performing, giving
Cranford an above average rating.
The magazine used a ”proprietary formula” to chart student achievement trends and used data from the state's High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA), SAT scores and other data in its calculations to reach the letter grades. View the full report on NJ.com.
Cranford High School was given an 'A' grade for "above average scores, below average growth." The composite SAT score at CHS was 1606.
The student achievement was calculated at a
2.9 percent change over the study period, from 2008 to 2012.
Nearby, Arthur L. Johnson H.S. in Clark also received an A, while Westfield High School received a B for “above average scores, above average growth.” Scotch Plains-Fanwood H.S. and Roselle Park H.S. also received a B rating. At the bottom, David Brearley H.S. in Kenilworth received a D for “below average scores, below average growth.”
