Click here to read the full article from NorthJersey.com
"Ten Bergen County schools are among 57 that New Jersey has deemed to be "Reward Schools," meaning they were among the highest performing in the state last year, or saw the greatest student gains in passing state tests... The others in the high-performance category include Alpine Elementary School, Lyncrest Elementary School in Fair Lawn, Richard E. Byrd School and Central School in Glen Rock, Charles DeWolf Middle School in Old Tappan and Sicomac Elementary School in Wyckoff. The state said these schools had the highest rates of proficiency on state tests last spring — schoolwide and in various racial and ethnic groups."
