slides: The Top High Schools in Massachusetts 2013

What is Massachusetts' Top High School?

GoLocalWorcester's 2nd Annual Massachusetts' Top High Schools 2013 is the proprietary ranking that crunches hundreds of pieces of data from 345 public, charter and technical schools statewide to reveal how our communities' schools provide for their students.

With school quality a cornerstone of real estate values and a crucial element of civic pride, this quantitative analysis of each school provides a sweeping and comprehensive view of the secondary school educational landscape in Massachusetts.

To hear from Massachusetts realtors about the importance of school quality to homeowners, go here.

GoLocal employs a formula developed at Babson College to assess and weight each school's latest MCAS and SAT scores, plus per pupil funding, student-teacher ratios, and graduation rates. All data is the latest available from the Massachusetts Department of Secondary and Elementary Education's data bases, current as of April 2013.

To read more about GoLocal's methodology, go here.

Here, check profiles of the state's Top 100 public, charter and technical high schools; on Wednesday look for analysis and reaction to the rankings; on Thursday, return to see GoLocalWorcester's chart of each school's data, from MCAS and SAT scores to spending per pupil and student-teacher ratios.

Nothing may be more discussed, debated, and even gossiped about, than schools. They dominate local culture with sports, student stars, college acceptances (or rejections), and the incredible hum of teen life. Everyone has loyalties. Most think theirs is best. And, with typical Bay State passion, are willing to argue it long past the clearing of an athletic field, the curtain on a senior theatrical or band concert, the end of a debate competition or Mock Trial.

Note: Schools that did not submit MCAS or SAT data were not ranked.
