  • Mason Rice (No. 3)
  • Cabot (No. 10)
  • Zervas (No. 13
  • Ward (No. 14)
  • Peirce (No. 19)
  • Memorial Spaulding (Np. 25)

The rankings are created by Pittsburgh-based Niche.com Inc., and take into account “a number of factors, including an assessment of academic proficiency based on DOE and other data; a review of teachers’ salaries and absenteeism; student-to-teacher ratios; and state test results. Schools are also given a letter grade based on the racial and economic diversity of their student bodies.”
