Assembly Republican Press Release -
According to the latest school rankings by Niche, six of the top 100 schools in New Jersey are located in Legislative District 16. Senator Kip Bateman and Assembly Republicans Jack Ciattarelli and Donna Simon today lauded the students, teachers and administrators at those schools for their outstanding achievement. Niche is an organization founded by Carnegie Mellon University students in 2002 whose mission is to help people find their niche in society.
The District 16 schools include: Princeton High School (15); Montgomery High School (20); Hunterdon Central High School (22); South Brunswick High School (40); Hillsborough High School (58) and Somerville High School (71).
“New Jersey has some of the best schools in the nation thanks to the quality of our educators and their dedication to their students,” said Bateman. “As these rankings show, that commitment to excellence is exemplified by the students, teachers and administrators of the schools in District 16. I’m extremely proud of what these schools have accomplished and am excited to see the way these students shape the future of our state and country.”
“Students, their families, teachers, and administrators deserve recognition for outstanding achievement in the field of public education,” said Ciattarelli. “Students’ efforts to fully develop their skills, challenge themselves to attain a level of excellence, and the commitment of all who influence students must be commended. Transitioning from the lower grades to high school is a big adjustment both academically and socially. These schools are proof that dedication and commitment is worth the effort.”
“These outstanding schools are to be highly commended and recognized for promoting an atmosphere where learning and nurturing academic excellence is a top priority,” said Simon. “These accomplishments take a strong partnership between the students, school, top shelf teachers, and parents. I congratulate them on becoming a model of education in New Jersey. We are proud to boast of your success.”
