Does good schools mean to you that like JP Stevens High School of North Edison got #1 in NJ Science League Chemistry Competition in 2007 won over hundreds of all other high schools in NJ?
or does it mean to you that like Middlesex Academy of Science based at Middlesex County College won #1 in NJ Science League Physics Competition in 2007 over hundreds of all other high schools in NJ?
or does it mean to you Piscataway High School won #1 in 10 activities of NJ FBLA (Future Business Leader of American) in 2007 over hundreds of all other high schools in NJ? and some team won over #1 in 40+ states and step in to final and got plaque back?
Or does it mean to you that schools with glory past and moving downward?
