"Watertown High School ranked among the 2017 Best High Schools in the state by the U.S. News & World Report, earning Silver Medal recognition.
U.S. News used a four-step process to determine the Best High Schools. The first three steps ensure that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of the ACT. This includes examining the performance of subgroups such as minorities and students who are economically disadvantaged. Graduation rates also are used as benchmarks. Students need to exceed state averages in both instances.
For schools that meet these criteria, a fourth step is used to assess the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work, as measured by participation and pass rates on Advanced Placement exams. Only the top 15% of High schools nationwide receive gold (2.5%) or silver (next 12.5%) medal recognition.
Congratulations to our WHS staff, students and families for this noteworthy accomplishment!"
