Passing rate for PARCC exams in 65 NJ schools

For all the debate over whether the new PARCC exams were too difficult or put schools and students at a disadvantage, there are those schools where 100 percent of the students passed. Sixty-five schools in New Jersey saw all of their students post either a 4 or a 5 (on a scale of 5) on one exam or another. The list includes the state’s selective county magnet schools, but also School 28 in Paterson, where all the sixth graders passed the math test, and Texas Avenue in Atlantic City, where they earned 100 percent on the algebra test.
