slides: The Top 50 Public High Schools in New England

Friday, August 23, 2013

 

Topping the New England rankings: the Maine School of Science + Mathematics, or MSSM.

With back to school looming in New England, it's the perfect time to look at the 50 public, charter, and technical high schools that top the region for highest achievement.

Utlizing the assessment tools from US News & World Report's annual Best High Schools rankings, GoLocalWorcester has compiled the ultimate New England list of the best of the region. These Top 50 schools reveal the incredible diversity of size and location of those schools that are topping the rankings nationally.

Ranking high schools nationwide

US News compiles data on more than 21,000 public high schools and derives each school's ranking on two central features: how well each schools prepares its students for college and how many students display proficiency on their state's standardized assessment examinations. For more on US News's methodology, go here.

Central Massachusetts top performers

Among New England's Top 50 High Schools, Marlborough's Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School placed a remarkable #4 in the region (and #130 in the US overall). The Bromfield School in Harvard also placed in New England's Top 10, at #7 (and #149 nationally). Overall, Massachusetts dominated the ranking with 26 of the Top 50 schools--testimony to the state's ongoing high academic reputation.

To see all 50 of New England's Top Public High Schools and compare their performance on standardized state testing, college readiness, and student-teacher ratios, see the slides, below.

Note on academic indicators, below: As part of its assessment and ranking, US News creates a College Readiness Index score to reflect how many students take AP and IB exams, and how they perform (the maximum index score is 100). Math and English/reading proficiency scores indicate what percentage of students were at or above proficiency in testing in both subjects.
