MSN's money section recently ran a story about the 50 most expensive high schools in the country. So expensive, in fact, that they cost more than a lot of colleges. No, really. Some people are willing to spend this kind of cash even though New Jersey public schools are among the very best in the United States.

6 of the 50 most expensive private high schools in the United States are right here in New Jersey. You can bet my kids will never attend here. Even if I did have the money, I wouldn't spend this. Their public school system is terrific, and is all they should need to be successful if they focus and work hard. To each his own.
