Woodbury High School . . . Ranked #1 in Gloucester County

I hope that you saw the front-page article in the Gloucester County Times last week that reported on how Woodbury High School was ranked #1 in Gloucester County in two separate magazine articles. The current issues of both New Jersey Monthly and Philadelphia Magazine summarize the results of their independent efforts to rank area high schools.

In the New Jersey Monthly magazine, Woodbury was ranked top in the county and eighth in the three county region that includes Burlington County, Camden County, and Gloucester County. The top ten in that region are as follows:

TOP TEN SOUTH JERSEY HIGH SCHOOLS

Haddonfield -- Camden County
Cherry Hill East -- Camden County
Eastern Regional -- Camden County
Moorestown -- Burlington County
Haddon Township -- Camden County
Brimm Medical Arts -- Camden County
Shawnee -- Burlington County
WOODBURY -- Gloucester County
Delran -- Burlington County
Pitman -- Gloucester County

New Jersey Monthly stated that this year's effort to rank schools "is part of the most comprehensive education package the magazine has ever produced."

In Philadelphia Magazine, there is a listing that shows the top three schools in each county in the Philadelphia region. In this publication, Woodbury also occupied the top spot in Gloucester County.

Though there are many more positive aspects of Woodbury High School beyond what the numbers associated with these rankings capture, it is nice to see that these magazines arrived at a conclusion that we know to be true -- there is real quality in a Woodbury education. Our school is able to accomplish much due to the dedicated adults who are able to work with students in a very personalized setting. The support of our parents and the broader school community is also an important, positive asset!

Thumbs up to Woodbury! Last night I was over my parents house (they live in West Deptford) and this was the out topic. People are talking and taking notice.
