“This ranking is a testament to the numerous administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and students who work so hard to make every Hillsborough classroom a great place to be," he added.

Three elementary schools in Short Hills were ranked as the top three elementary schools in the state. The top ten list was rounded out by elementary schools in Princeton, Princeton Junction and Millburn.

The 2016 Best Public Elementary Schools ranking provides a comprehensive assessment of the overall experience of a public elementary school.  This grade takes into account key factors such as state test scores, the strength of academics, quality of teachers, student-teacher ratio, student diversity and the overall quality of the school district.

The annual survey ranked 51,397 schools nationally.
