Shrewsbury Borough School District


The Shrewsbury Borough School District in New Jersey is home to a single standout elementary school, Shrewsbury Borough Elementary School, which serves grades PK-8 and has consistently demonstrated exceptional academic performance, low chronic absenteeism, and a diverse student population.

Shrewsbury Borough Elementary School is a shining example of educational excellence, with students consistently outperforming the state average on NJSLA tests, particularly in 4th-grade English Language Arts (95.6% proficient) and 8th-grade Algebra I (95% proficient). The school has been ranked among the top elementary schools in New Jersey, placing 115th out of 1,342 schools in the 2022-2023 school year and 110th out of 1,317 schools in the 2020-2021 school year, both with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. Additionally, the school's low chronic absenteeism rate of 4.5% suggests a highly engaged student population and effective attendance policies.

While the school's student population is predominantly white (87.88%), it also has notable representation from Hispanic (4.33%), Asian (2.16%), and students of two or more races (5.19%), indicating a diverse learning environment. However, the extremely low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (0.65%) suggests that the school may not be serving a socioeconomically diverse population, which could raise equity concerns and warrant further examination of the school's efforts to ensure equitable access and support for all students.
