These surveys really need to be understood and put in context. First, this is NOT a survey based on a national review of all high schools. This is a survey based on those that responded, approximately 2,300. There are more than 26,000 public high schools in the country, and another 10,000 plus private high schools. So, yes its good that Glen Rock and Ridgewood are in the top of this list, but its also important to understand the context. Its a feel good survey.
