Niche, the status-conscious website that has given Wellesley public schools a top-ten ranking among Massachusetts public school systems in the past, has finally come to its senses and given us the #1 ranking we always knew we deserved.
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 yeah, the Wellesley schools are kind of a thing.
Niche listed nearby Needham at #11, while Dover-Sherborn ranked #23.
Others who joined us in the top ten: Lexington, Newton, Westford, Cambridge, Belmont, Weston, Brookline, Wayland, and Acton-Boxborough.
