RI’s #9 School 2012: Scituate High School
Monday, May 14, 2012
Improving its student-teacher ratio from 10-1 in 2011 to 9-1 to 2012, combined with increases in Math and Writing NECAPs, gave Scituate High enough momentum to go from a #11 ranking in 2011 up two spots (and past #10-ranked Classical High School) to this year's #9 spot.
It's a testimony to the power of small class size as a factor in school quality, that Scituate rose despite its compromising SAT performance this year. Other factors that helped Scituate earn its Top 10 slot include a graduation rate of 90.6%—the fourth-best rate in an all-star group.
