Every other year New Jersey Monthly Magazine features a cover article titled “Top High Schools.” In it, they use their own methodology to rank public high schools throughout the state. They examine variables like AP placement exam results (which show college readiness), average SAT scores, % that attend college etc. These types of articles set off a flurry for home buyers who are deciding where to purchase their next home. To assist buyers in the process, I cross referenced the list to determine the top high schools on the Midtown Direct train line.
The BIG news is that 7 of the top 20 performing high schools in the entire state (more than 300 schools were in the study) are in towns that have stops on the Midtown Direct train line. The correlation between high performing high schools and easily accessible towns is strong. It makes sense since NYC commuters need both – favorable commutes and good schools for their kids.
