slides: The Top High Schools in Rhode Island 2013

What is Rhode Island's Top High School?

GoLocalProv's Fourth Annual Top High Schools in Rhode Island 2013 ranking crunches thousands of pieces of data from RI's 49 public, charter and technical schools statewide to reveal how our communities' schools provide for their students. With school quality a cornerstone of real estate values and a crucial element of civic pride, this quantitative analysis of each school provides the only comprehensive view of the secondary school educational landscape in Rhode Island.

To hear from RI Realtors about the importance of school quality to homeowners, go here. 

GoLocal employs a formula developed at Babson College to assess and weight each school's latest NECAP and SAT scores, plus per pupil funding, student-teacher ratios, and graduation rates. All data is the latest available from the Rhode Island Department of Education's databases, current as of April 2013.

Nothing may be more discussed, debated, and even gossiped about, than schools. They dominate local culture with sports, student stars, college acceptances (or rejections), and the incredible hum of teen life. Everyone has loyalties. Most think theirs is best. And, with typical Rhode Island passion, are willing to argue it long past the clearing of an athletic field, the curtain on a senior theatrical or band concert, the end of a debate competition or Mock Trial. It's the most talked-about ranking in Rhode Island.

Note: Block Island High School, due to its very small size, cannot be assessed and compared in GoLocal's ranking; Hope Arts and Information/Tech closed after 2011-12; in 2012-13, Hope High School reopened under a new entity, but data for the new Hope High was not available for this year's ranking.

Research team: Sabrina Abballe, Monica White, Benjamin Mandeville, Kalena Crafton, Elizabeth R. Koh.
