For the first time this year, Inside Jersey based its scores on four years worth of High School
Proficiency Assessment data released by the New Jersey Department of
Education, which was then weighted with SAT scores as well.
The report noted that schools with "D" grades showed "below average scores, below average growth."
Scores for Ocean County high schools as a whole were mixed. Both Brick Township high schools, as well as Manchester High School, New Egypt High School, Pinelands Regional High School and Lakewood High School also received Ds.
Southern Regional High School and Point Pleasant Beach High School were the only two high schools in the county to receive 'A' grades.
