For the second year in a row, New Jersey public schools earned the top overall ranking in Education Week magazine’s annual Quality Counts report. The report grades each state’s K-12 academics, chances for student success, and financial support of schools.

This year, New Jersey finished first among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, with an overall score of 87.3 out of 100 points and a grade of B plus.

“New Jersey’s public school system has consistently been a strong performer, and all of us should be proud of these results,” said Interim Education Commissioner Kevin Dehmer. “This is a collective effort, and the recognition should go to the administrators, teachers, school staff, students and parents whose commitment helps ensure our 1.4 million students receive a world-class education.”
