slides: The Top 50 Most Diverse Public High Schools in MA

Saturday, June 01, 2013

 

What are Massachusetts' 50 most diverse public high schools? GoLocal's new ranking has the answer.

Diversity continues to be one of education's most talked-about topics--how well are high school students prepared for a complex, racially and ethnically diverse society? How diverse, really, are the hallways and classrooms of each public and charter high school in the state?

Utilizing data filed by each school with the Institute for Education Science's National Center for Education Statistics, GoLocal researchers assessed each Bay State public and charter high 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.

How did your school do?
