Boston Magazine recently set out on a mission to find out. Here's how they did it..."We compared test scores from elementary, middle, and high schools in 135 districts, then looked within those districts to determine how schools were improving (or not) over time. Next, we called superintendents, principals, teachers, coaches, administrative assistants, and guidance counselors to ask: How many AP classes do you have? Can a kid play freshman sports? Do you offer pre-K of any kind? Will a child's passion for math, science, or writing be fostered here? (The vast majority were helpful, though we did get hung up on once because it was Field Day.) Finally, we crunched the data and came up with this, our exclusive ranking of the region's 50 best school districts."
Thank you Boston Magazine! Here are the results Part I - In The Classroom! Coming soon...Part II - Achievement Scores!
