Chatham H.S. Ranks 20th in State, NJ Monthly Says
School drops 12 spots from No. 8 two years ago.
Chatham High School was ranked as the No. 20 high school in the entire state by New Jersey Monthly magazine.
Two years ago, when the rankings were last released, the school was ranked 8th.
Of the 19 schools the publication ranked higher, three were from Morris County.
NJ Monthly uses information from the state Department of Education to develop its rankings, which only takes into account public schools in the state. Student performance and student outcomes were the most heavily weighted to determine the rankings, followed by school environment.
New Providence High School, in Union County, was ranked No. 1. Nearby Madison and Summit high schools were ranked 6th and 15th, respectively. Madison was joined in the top 10 by fellow Morris County schools Kinnelon (5) and Mountain Lakes (7).
