4 NJ schools ranked in nation's top 100

A new survey by U.S. News and World Report ranks four New Jersey schools among the top 100 in the nation.

Lincroft's High Technology High School, ranked seventh, was the top-rated school in the state. Hudson County's McNair Academic High School also made it into the top 50, ranked as the 26th best program.

Princeton High School, number 94, and Millburn Senior High, number 97, made the list as well.

The survey covered 18,000 schools in 40 states. Standings were based on AP test scores, state test scores and the scores of economically disadvantaged students.

Teachers and administrators at McNair expressed pride in the students' work.

"It's another validation that our program is functioning," says McNair Principal Ed Slattery. "They work hard."
