Princeton High Makes U.S. News and World Report’s 2014 Top 10 List

PHSU.S. News and World Report has ranked Princeton High School among the top 10 best high schools of New Jersey for 2014. Princeton High School is number 10 out of 398 high schools in the state and number 216 nationally, according to the report, which includes data on more than 19,400 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.

West Windsor-Plainsboro High South ranks 14th and Montgomery High ranks 16th. West Windsor-Plainsboro High North ranks 20th.

Princeton High is one of only three schools on the New Jersey Top 10 list that are open-enrollment schools. The remaining schools are technical or magnet schools with a selective admission policy. Princeton High School is ranked number 91 nationally in the list of Best STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) high schools. Only 250 high schools nationwide received a STEM ranking, which is based on a measure of student participation and performance on math and science AP exams.

U.S. News’s methodology for determining the overall rankings is based on the following three factors: 1) students’ reading and math results from the state standardized tests; 2) the scores of minority and low-income students as compared with the average for similar students in the state; and 3) the “college-readiness” index, which is based on the percentage of seniors in the 2011-12 academic year who took and passed Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

“We are pleased that the ranking recognizes both high achievement and equity,” said Superintendent Stephen Cochrane. “We congratulate our staff and students for their continued commitment to excellence.”

In 2013, Princeton High School did not make the U.S. News and World Report rankings at all, but West Windsor-Plainsboro High South was in the top 10 list.
