Basking Ridge School District in the News
Niche.com gathered data on 243 school districts throughout the state. Our very own Basking Ridge School District ranked #7 on Niche.com’s Best School Districts in New Jersey. That put them in the top spot for all of Somerset County as well. The next Somerset County districts on the list were Montgomery Township (#17) and Hillsborough Township (#22). They received A’s for their clubs and activities, administration, and health and safety measures. A grade of A+ was given for their academics, teachers, college prep courses, and sports programs. With a student-teacher ratio of 12:1, you can understand why they achieved such high proficiency scores. Most amazingly of all, 97% of all students (on average) graduate high school in the Basking Ridge School District. That’s well above the 81% national average. Way to go teachers and kids!
