Good Afternoon Folsom Team!


The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) released the new school scores, which are graded on a scale of 0-100. The score and percentage weight of each accountability indicator are listed below for our school. The indicator scores are averaged to give us an overall score.


Our 47th percentile rating is considered average. I attached two links for you; the first gives you access that compare other New Jersey PK/K-8 School Districts in the surrounding counties and the other is a search engine for all NJ schools.
