America's Best High Schools - Newsweek Interesting list. What I'd like to see is a further breakdown of parental income and education, race, and disabilities. Cherry Hill East NJ was 226. Cherry Hill West was 402.. I'd love to see the researchers do a "twin study". Same budget, teacher qualifications, curriculum and course offerings, methods, sports, etc. , yet East scored so much higher. I am familiar with the difference in demographics of these two schools. One significant difference (besides household income) is that "East" has a large number of Chinese students. Hmmmm. Educational social justice? Perhaps these "reformers" might want to look at "Redistribution of the Chinese". It's not fair!!!! Seriously, educational research needs to compare apples to apples. They might want to look at Cherry Hill. (Attention Gov. Christie!) The entire list is at the link. Anyone know anything about these schools?
