Nashoba Ranks High
The Boston Business Journal used district-wide MCAS scores for all grade levels as well as SAT and PSAT results to rank the top-performing school districts in Massachusetts. We ranked 24 out of the top 25 in the Commonwealth. Given that there are 242 public school districts in the state, this puts NASHOBA in the top 10% of school systems in the Commonwealth. Congratulations! As parents, families and students, you work hard each and every day to succeed, so you should feel great pride that our district has earned this honor.
Each 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:
More Massachusetts public high school graduates are succeeding on Advanced Placement (AP) exams today than took them a decade ago, according to the 10th Annual AP Report to the Nationfrom the College Board. Last year, 27.9% of MA public high school graduates in the class of 2013 scored a 3 or higher on an AP exam during high school, up from 25.5% two years ago and 16.8% a decade ago. A score of 3 or higher on an AP exam is predicative of college success and college graduation. For more info, go to http://www.doe.mass.edu/news/news.aspx?id=8051.
