When "surveys," "lists," and "ratings" concerning NJ come out, often they're not good. Most of the time it's because the Garden State gets a bad rap and we tend to be the punching bag of the country. Finally, a new report puts our state on top...for a good thing!

According to financial website Wallethub.com, NJ has the best school systems in the country!



The site used 12 factors to come up with their findings. They included student-teacher ratios, math and reading test scores, dropout rates and bullying incidents.

Jersey had the best overall rank, and was tops in the “School System Quality Rank.”

Check out the full report here.
