In 2018, the average New Jersey SAT score was 1,085. Monmouth High Schools are excelling.

You'll notice a trend with these results from NJ Advanced Media. They posted the top 50 high schools and the technology/specialty schools and schools in wealthier areas ranked higher. It makes sense that families that can afford "best of the best" SAT prep and tutors would have an advantage. That being said, here's how Monmouth County looked in the top 50.
