Both Ramapo and Indian Hills High School were named among the “most challenging high schools in New Jersey” by a ranking recently compiled by the Washington Post.
The list has Ramapo ranked as the 36th school on the list of 122 NJ schools, and Indian Hills as 78th.
According to the Post, the ranking is based on a simple equation – the number of college-level (AP) tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Any school with a ratio of 1.0 or better made the list.
On the national ranking, the American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, Calif. Came in at Number 1, with a 21.91 score.
On the New Jersey list, Elizabeth High School scored the top spot, with a 7.669 score.
