New Jersey Monthly magazine is out with its biannual ranking of the top high schools in the state and the No. 1 school is … not Verona.

It was Millburn, again. We finished finished in exactly the same place in 2010 as we did in 2008: 53rd. The magazine ranked 322 high schools in all based on state data from the 2008-2009 school year. (You can read its methodology here.) Caldwell finished ahead of us, at 45 (up from 57), but Cedar Grove was way behind at 103, down from 70 the last time. Montclair was 94, down from 85 in the 2008 rankings.

Verona Superintendent Charles B. Sampson noted that the 2010 ranking put VHS in the top 20% of state high schools. “We always strive toward the continual improvement of our schools along any metric,” he said, “and have already set a path to move a greater number of our students into advanced placement courses and to continue our extensive work around our strategic plan related to the teaching and learning within our fine schools-endeavors that I am confident will ultimately benefit all students.”
