BAD NEWS!
A New Jersey State Department of Education report released in March 2019 list the names of the most dangerous schools in the 21 counties of the state. 6a00d8341bf7d953ef01a3fd2eb50e970b-320wi

According to nj1015.com schools that made the most calls to police were Passaic High School with 109 calls, Kingsway Regional High School with 86 calls, and East Brunswick High School with 53 calls. Passaic High School, which has more than 3,100 students, had the most calls concerning violence and drugs as well as the most bullying investigation.

Violent incidents were up by 31% from the previous year but state officials cautioned against comparing the two most recent years because this was the first time districts used the state’s new Student Safety Data System to record the stats. The data was released in March.

Information for each public school and charter in the state can be found at the Department of Education’s New Jersey School Performance Reports website.

Below are the names of the schools in Camden County that made the 25 Most Violent list. nj1015.com listed the schools in descending order based on the combined rate of calls to police and incidents of harassment, intimidation and bullying in the 2017-18 year. Use the state's website to search for a specific school.
