The 2015 Niche rankings are in, and the status-conscious website says that Wellesley High School is #8 among Massachusetts public high schools.
Nearby Dover-Sherborn Regional High came in at #1, and Weston High School was just above Wellesley at #7.
The rating site relies heavily on survey results from 280,000 students and parents who weigh in on categories such as health and safety, resources and facilities, and academics. Niche says that “A high ranking indicates that the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experience very highly.”
So based on that, go ahead and strut your #8 stuff, WHS.
