U.S. News & World Report has released a new list of high school rankings.
Acton-Boxborough Regional High School was recently ranked 15 out of 62 on the U.S. News & World Report's Best High School rankings for Massachusetts.
The schools that slipped in front of ABRHS in order from 14 to 1:
- Number 14: Lexington High School
- Duxbury High School
- Wellesley High School
- Newton South High School
- Cohasset High School
- The Bromfield School
- Mystic Valley Regional Charter School
- Sharon High School
- Dover-Sherborn High School

- Boston Latin School
- Number 1: Sturgis Charter Public School
According to the magazine, ABRHS ranked 'above average' for all four categories:
1). Student/Teacher Ratio
2). College Readiness
Overall, a specific methodology was used to formulate the list, which often generates controversy. The magazine partnered with the American Institutes for Research, a Washington D.C.–based social science research group to rank 22,000 public high schools.
Specifically, the state rankings are based on their nationwide rankings. Schools that received a gold or silver medal for the national rankings are numerically ranked meaning if a school in a state is 50 on the national list, then it is the top school in the state, according to the magazine..
The rankings are based on data from the 2009-2010 school year, according to the magazine.
