The school was the only private school among the nine winners in New Jersey that year, one of 50 private schools nationwide to be honored and one of only two Jewish-affiliated schools to receive this recognition. Head of School Dr. Howard Rosenblatt indicated that the school qualified for this national honor by demonstrating sustained academic achievement in the school over a period of years. An application was submitted in fall 2008 and reviewed by the Council for American Private Education, which passes on its choices for private schools to be honored to the Department of Education.
