Massachusetts public schools are some of the best, and Boston Magazine lists 10 Best Public High School. The List of 10 best Public High Schools I have highlighted since 2016. Here you will find 2018 10 Best Public High Schools. Massachusetts has a lot of great towns with great schools and always find it interesting that the list of schools changes in there ranking. Schools you think will be in the top 10 are not, and ones you didn’t expect are on the list. When picking a home you can have great home value, but your school might not be in the top 10.
Massachusetts the 10 Best Public High School
6) Newton South
The schools that made the number 1 and two spots in top schools made the same list order in 2017, but Weston High School, Lexington High School dropped in there ranking and Wayland, Manchester Essex, Newton South all improved there ranking as best schools. The newcomers to the list that were not on the list last year Sharon High School, The Broomfield, and Acton- Boxborough Regional High School. If you want to see how any of these school performed in 2016 you can check out that information here. Just because your town didn’t make the list of Top Schools doesn’t mean there is anything wrong moving to that town. There are many towns that didn’t make the top 10 but are great areas to call home especially when raising children like Brookline, Wellesley, Winchester, and Westwood. If you are thinking about moving and you are thinking about raising a family the school systems do play a role but aren’t everything. Since I have done this topic a few times I am not highlighting every single town list of towns featured in 2018 Boston Magazine Best Schools just some that weren’t mentioned the prior year.
