East Brunswick, NJ – With the release this past week of 2016 school rankings from New Jersey Monthly Magazine, East Brunswick’s public schools have again been recognized as some of the top schools in the state.  

East Brunswick High School was ranked 25th in New Jersey Monthly Magazine’s annual list of the top Public High Schools, an improvement from their last ranking of 47.  With over 700 students, East Brunswick High School continues to be the largest school within NJ Monthly’s Top 100.       

Earlier this year, Niche.com’s annual list of “Best School Districts in New Jersey”, ranked East Brunswick the 13th best school district, an improvement over last year’s ranking of 25.  According to Niche, their rankings account for “strength of academics, quality of teachers, school resources, the quality of student life, as well as student and parent reviews, in an attempt to measure the overall excellence of the district.”    

“The continued success and improvement of our local schools is an example of what happens when elected officials, students, parents and the entire community work together for the betterment of our town and its future,” said Brad Cohen, the Democratic candidate for mayor, who is also serving on the East Brunswick Board of Education.  “In the face of continued state cuts to education, we have continued to provide a Blue Ribbon education in all 11 district schools. This is the kind of value for our tax dollar that I have insisted upon as a member of the Board of Education and the kind of results-driven leadership I will bring to our community as our township’s mayor.”
