NJ High Schools’ SAT Rankings

Posted on April 20, 2021

The College Board’s SAT is one of the primary standardized tests used by colleges to assess a student’s entrance qualifications. Despite the pandemic – even as testing has been delayed or centers have been closed — the SAT still plays an important role for New Jersey high school students applying to college.

Below is a list of each New Jersey high school’s combined average scores just released by the state and ranked highest to lowest.

A perfect score is a combined 1600.

The SAT scores were part of the state Department of Education’s School Performance Reports for the 2019-20 school year. The reports include figures on enrollment, proficiency scores, PARCC scores, graduation rates, substance abuse rates SAT scores. Read more: NJ School Districts With Most Drug, Alcohol Cases: New Data 2021
