Westborough Gets 44th on State’s Best High School List

US News & World Report surveyed high schools around the United States for its latest rankings.

Westborough Gets 44th on State’s Best High School List

US News & World Report released its annual list of the nation’s top high schools and Westborough High School came in 44th for the state of Massachusetts.

Nationally, the school ranked 909th and received a silver medal.

According to the report, in order to be ranked, the magazine teamed up with American Institutes for Research to evaluate schools in three areas: overall student performance on state-mandated assessments, the effectiveness by which the schools educated minorities and those who were economically disadvantaged, and then performance in advanced placement and International Baccalaureate exams. The schools then earned gold, silver, and bronze medals based on the outcome of the analysis.

40 percent of students at Westborough, according to the survey, take AP classes, with 98 percent showing proficiency in English and 94 percent in Math. The school received a college readiness index of 36.7.

The Boston Latin School was first in the state with the Advanced Math & Science Academy Charter School in Marlborough coming in second.
