New Jersey’s state education commissioner Lamont Repollet recognized 11 public schools as Lighthouse Districts.

As part of the state’s effort to keep on top of schools and their students’ educational progress, every year the state sees fit to identify certain school districts as Lighthouse Districts.

Such recognition is based upon the school demonstrating that they have excelled in helping their students achieve distinguishable academic gains.

Such designated schools then share their strategies and successes with the other New Jersey school districts.

Two of the eleven districts singled out were located in Monmouth County and one was in Middlesex County:
Perth Amboy School District (Middlesex County)
Long Branch School District (Monmouth County)
Red Bank Borough School District (Monmouth County)
