Inside Jersey, a magazine produced by the Star Ledger, used a 'proprietary formula' to chart trends in student achievement over the past four years. The magazine used the state's High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA), SAT scores and other data in its calculations to dole out letter grades. The full report can be seen here on NJ.com.
Both Freehold Borough and Freehold Township High Schools received grades of 'A' for "above average scores, below average growth."
At Freehold Borough, the composite SAT score was 1608. Student achievement growth fell .3 percent during the study period.
At Freehold Township, the composite SAT score was 1543. Student achievement grew at 4.5% over the study period.
Read the report in the print edition of the In Jersey. In it, the report says schools that scored 'A' are considered "above average to excellent. Many are great schools with scores that have remained high."
