slides: The Most Diverse Private + Parochial High Schools in MA

Saturday, June 01, 2013

 

What are Massachusetts' most diverse private and parochial high schools? GoLocal's new ranking has the answer.

Among private and parochial schools, diversity is central to most mission statements and often trumpeted in marketing materials, on websites, and in admissions packets. To see how truly diverse these schools are, GoLocal analyzed data voluntarily submitted by these schools to the Institute for Education Science's National Center for Education Statistics. From there, GoLocal researchers assessed each school's overall racial balance (for more on the methodology, go here.) The more balanced a school's enrollment was across all race categories as named by the NCES, the higher it ranked.

Note: many schools do not submit data, and therefore are not ranked. For a full chart of those schools ranked, go here.
