Verona High School Recognized Top 1.5% In The Nation

Verona High School was recently recognized on the 2018 Jay Mathews Challenge Index in the top 1.5% of all schools in the U.S., #318 in the nation, #7 in N.J., and #2 among all conventional public high schools in N.J., our highest ranking ever. This ranking represents a significant climb from #1512, since 2016. (The Washington Post America’s Most Challenging High Schools 2016). Also worth noting, our student performance on Advanced Placement exams have improved from 5 years ago, as student access and participation in rigorous coursework has increased. Verona High School’s recognition is a testament to how well our students are prepared in grades K-8 prior to entering Verona High School. This, combined with a quality staff, curriculum, and student supports has resulted in increased student achievement. This success is only possible through the constant focus, commitment, and support of the Board of Education, administration, staff, students, and families. Click here to read more.
