Gloucester City High School Moving On Up!

  Media Release

Gloucester City High School has reason to be proud, being listed as an "2007a_2 on the move" school.

  Since 1994, New Jersey Monthly, a magazine that caters to the needs of the Garden State, has produced a biennial ranking of public and charter schools.

  The resulting ranking is part of the most comprehensive education package the magazine has ever produced, including the value of Advanced Placement classes and the dilemma posed by alternative paths to a high school diploma.

  The magazine also composed a list of high schools they label "On the Move," giving the top 10 schools "A's" for improvement.

  Gloucester City Junior Senior High School (GHS) made that prestigious list of 10, by earning a significant spike in its ranking as compared to 2006.

  GHS improved its ranking by 57 places.

  Taken into account was average class size, the average SAT score, number and scores of AP tests taken, graduation rate and number of faculty with advanced degrees.

  Significant academic and programmatic progress has been made at GHS, and it is reflected in both its statewide and county ranking. 

  "Congratulations to the students, faculty, administration and Board of Education for their fine efforts," Spokesperson Lynda Lathrop said.

  GHS's ranking, in order, compared to other Camden County high schools, is as follows:

  Haddonfield (number one) Cherry Hill East, Brimm Medical Arts, Easter Regional, Haddon Township, Cherry Hill West, Haddon Heights, Gloucester City (number eight), Audubon (number nine), and Creative and Performing Arts.
