Nashoba Ranks HighEach year a number of organizations rank area educational institutions. We know that these rankings are read by our parents, students, and community members. They do say something about the work we do day in and day out. While the headlines grab your attention, it is the methodology that they use that grabs ours. We look to see why we are in the ranking, what the sample was, and how the methodology components add up. One section of their methodology may be the difference between being included or excluded. Each section is a meaningful segment, but because it is just one, it doesn't detract from the totality of the good work in which our students and educators are engaged each and every day. We are a strong district, and a strong high school. We know what we have to improve, and we know that we can't just rest on our laurels where we are successful. We strive to be better each day.

AP Participation and Success Rates Continue to Rise:
