There are more than 16,000 three and four-year high schools in America and Newsweek magazine has chosen to rank the top 500. Verona High School made the list, and made it in the top 300.
VHS is ranked 296 on the list and it is one of only two schools in Essex County and 36 schools in New Jersey to be included. Livingston is No. 106, but no other surrounding town high schools are on the list this year (Glen Ridge was on it last year, at No. 887, when the methodology and list size were different).
Several of the New Jersey high schools that belong to the same district factor group as Verona are on the list. Berkeley Heights is 155 this year, Kinnelon is 182, Madison is 200 and Cresskill is 350.
