On Tuesday US News and World Report published their list of the best High Schools in the United States. There was a total of 6,041 High Schools in the survey. 85 of those were from New Jersey. Data of 20,000 High Schools in the US were used. Schools were ranked by the performance of the Students per school. Next they were assessed whether disadvantaged students performed at or better than state averages for the least-advantaged students. Schools were then judged by graduation rates and college readiness. Finally, U.S. News calculated a college readiness index, which was the number of 12th graders who took and passed at least one AP test, divided by the number of 12th graders at that school. To be ranked numerically nationally, schools had to pass steps 1-3 and have a college readiness index of 20.91 or greater.
Bogota was ranked 2446 in the Nation and 68 in the State, that places it 16th in Bergen County. This result earned Bogota a Silver Medal with US News and World Report. In the publication scorecard of College readiness, Math, & English proficiency and AP testing & passing Bogota did not score above 50% in any of the categories.
