Boston Magazine is out with its list of the top high schools in Greater Boston. They release this list every year and it’s based on several factors. Some of the factors include MCAS scores, graduation rates, educator evaluations, college attendance rates, SAT scores and Advanced Placement test scores. As far as location of schools for the rankings, only schools within the vicinity of I-495 are considered. Private and charter schools or specialty schools were not considered.

Boston Magazine also released other rankings within Greater Boston Public Schools. Average class size, “Bang for your housing buck,” Student-to-teacher ratio and percent of teachers with exemplary rating. For average class size, Carver Middle High School topped the list followed by Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School, Quincy High School, Hingham High School and Milford. For “bang for your housing buck” Algonquin Regional topped the list followed by Apponequet Regional, Ashland and Boston Latin. For Student-to-teacher ratio Brighton High topped the list followed by Rockport High School, Mary Lyon Pilot High School and Salem High. As far as Percent of Teachers with Exemplary Rating, TechBoston Academy topped that list followed by Boston Latin School, Another Course to College and Manchester Essex Regional and New Mission High School. You can view the entire list of results in Boston Magazine HERE.

According to Boston Magazine: “As the challenges of the pandemic continue to amplify the opportunity gap in education, there has been increased scrutiny over the factoring of test scores, which tend to be correlated with higher family incomes and are increasingly regarded as an inadequate measure of student achievement.”

Is your child’s high school on this list? Do you feel it should be? We’d love for you to continue the conversation on the Getup Crew’s Facebook page. Here is Boston Magazine’s rankings of the top High Schools in Greater Boston for 2022.
