Moorestown High School got a favorable rating in a recent Inside Jersey magazine (NJ.com) report ranking high schools across the state, but the school board president said the district can't—and won't—put too much stock in it.
Inside Jersey used a letter grade system—much like students receive—to rate the schools. According to the formula, an "A" school has "above average scores, below average growth," while a "B" school has "above average scores, above average growth."
Based on Inside Jersey's rating system, Moorestown received an "A." Moorestown's SAT scores (1707) are the highest in the county, according to the report, and its HSPA scores improved by 3.5 percent between 2008-12.
