For the first time this year, Inside Jersey based its scores on four years worth of High School
Proficiency Assessment data released by the New Jersey Department of
Education, which was then weighted with SAT scores as well.
Although Barnegat Township High School lagged behind Southern Regional - Inside Jersey awarded Barnegat with a "B" grade and Southern with an "A" grade - a
report on nj.com noted that "schools with Bs were the ones that showed the most improvement in the last four years."
the report notes that the median average home is valued at $272,200 in
areas that send children to Barnegat, compared with
$369,400 at Southern.
