Westfield High School moved down in its national standings and up among its New Jersey peers in U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of “Best High Schools.”

A new ranking out from the website WalletHub puts Westfield last in a nationwide list of 1,337 “Best & Worst Small Cities to Start a Business,” but not everyone agrees with the website’s analysis. Read these stories, and more, at the links below.
