It's been a well-known fact for YEARS now that New Jersey has some of the best schools in the entire country. Jersey always ranks pretty high on any list that compares various states' education institutions. Let's face it, New Jersey has some pretty awesome schools and some darn good teachers within them.

Whenever people are polled about why they chose to move to the Garden State, a lot of the time they'll answer because of the school districts. Even some of the "worst" districts in the state are better than other school systems in the country. New Jersey prides itself on the level of education it can provide its students.

In a recent survey, New Jersey came in at number three for states with the overall best school systems in the US. In every metric of analysis, New Jersey faired pretty well. The state placed third for overall math scores, 2nd for reading test scores, fourth for the state's pupil-to-student ratio, and number ONE for having digital learning plans within the classroom.

For families with school-age children, New Jersey's one of the best places to be if you want your child to have access to the best education possible. Truth be told, we're really lucky to have so many great places for our kids to learn.
