See if your town’s high school made the Top 25.

Today, U.S. News & World Report released it’s high school rankings for 2021. Nationally, Massachusetts did really well. In fact, 46% of our schools ranked in the top 25% in the nation, which is a higher percentage than any other state.

What’s the criteria?  Apparently 6 factors are used in the publication’s evaluations: Reading and math proficiency, as well as reading and math performance, plus graduation rates, college curriculum breadth,  underserved student performance, and college readiness.
