  1. 26th? That’s what we get for $110,000 million? Realtors and mommies, time to wake up. Our schools suck. Fishbein and Gorman need to go.

  2. Realtors and mommies already putting another spin on this. Gotta keep the big lie going. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

  3. Half of the schools listed in front of Ridgewood are selective academies and tech schools pick from the cream of the crop.

  4. Is this NICHE new? How many organizations conduct school rankings? Do districts just keep studying different rankings until they get the rating they like?

  5. RHS is the number 1 high school in ….. Ridgewood.

  6. Throw another hundred million at it and see if that helps.

  7. Not even top 25…
    Yeah, Fishbein and Gorman are g a great job.
    At least when the Ginormous Grage and Low Income Housing gets built they will lift us back into the top 10.

  8. Geez, when I moved into R’wood in ’93, we were around 5th or 6th.

  9. Ridgewood schools were ranked nationally in the 1980s and 1990s. No more. As the “CEO” of a school board with a $110 mm annual budget, 10 “offices” and 500 employees, he has overseen the demise of our schools over the past decade. The “product” is in secular decline apart from very niche & expensive “special needs” education. Surely with a budget like that, we can attract world class & innovative leaders and educators that can improve our schools? Instead we get weather updates from Fishbein. If he’s so great, let him destroy another school system instead of ours. #TimeToGo #FireTheFish

  10. Tom Gorman is the man. Doing the best he can I’m sure.

  11. Ha Ha. Good one K. Loughlin.
    Don’t confuse being a “good guy” with being an effective leader.
    He may make a good drinking buddy but he does not make a good principal.

  12. Does anyone believe that Fishbein and Gorman are the right leaders for our schools? Are they capable of driving the innovation and dynamic change needed to improve our schools, and help prepare our students for the challenges of the world and workforce ahead? If the answer is no, why are they still employed?
