Unfortunately, the only concerns the Vineland community has for its schools is preventing a few cents increase in taxes and providing jobs for incompetent friends and family, so the district is doomed to the cellar for most students while privileged families make sure their children get high rankings from AP courses. The teachers are forced to work under incredible conditions due to the sheer incompetence of district administration in an impossible funding situation.

Vineland hs isnt the best high school but if you are academically or in any other aspect excellent, you can shine. You make a lot of friends and the education is aceptable but its only really worth going if you're in advanced classes

Vineland High School South In comparison to other schools in the south Jersey region. The overall apperance although it is being improved it still is just not at the level of schools in this region of the state. Academic qualities are good not great there are not real strict inforcement of studing or appling yourself. Little or no Parental involvement. The sports music is plentiful however it may not be the best or strongest but it is avaliable and ability to eccel is tremendous. Overall a good school to go to however not the best.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
