Morristown Named One of ‘America’s Best High Schools’

 

Morristown High School was named one of the country’s best high schools in the Newsweek and Daily Beast’s annual ‘America’s Best High Schools’ list, released Monday.

The list ranked what it called the 2,000 best high schools across the country.

Morristown High School was ranked No. 1272.

According to an explanation in Newsweek, schools across the nation were ranked based on six criteria – graduation rate, college acceptance rate, advanced exams (AP, IB and AICE tests) taken per student, average SAT or ACT score, average advanced placement score, and percentage of students enrolled in at least one advanced placement class.

Newsweek asked more than 5,000 high schools across the country to report their data from the 2010-11 school year. About 2,500 schools responded, and were ranked based on weighted calculations of the criteria listed above.
