Hoboken High School Awarded US News and World Report Bronze Status

Hoboken High School has made US News and World Report's list of notable New Jersey High Schools receiving a "bronze" award for 2008. Only 41 high schools out of more than 300 in the state received either a silver or a bronze rating according to Ron Zeitlinger of The Jersey Journal. This positions Hoboken High School among only 14% of New Jersey High Schools eligible for such distiction. This recognition by an independent and trusted national news magazine Hoboken High School and the administration, faculty and staff is noteworthy. Earlier this year, Hoboken High School was named the second most improved high school in the state of New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly.

In its second year, America's Best High Schools has again identified the country's top- performing high schools. The goal of the project remains the same: provide a clear, unbiased picture of how well public high schools serve all of their students - from the highest achieving to the lowest achieving - in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.
