HHS 7th in state in U.S. News rankings

In its 2024 rankings of high schools nationwide, U.S. News and World Report places Hopkinton High School 250th. HHS is the seventh-ranked high school in the state.

Five of the Massachusetts schools ranked ahead of Hopkinton are charter or exam schools: Boston Latin School (1), Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School (2), Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School (4), Sturgis Charter Public School (5) and John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science (6). Lexington High School is third.

According to U.S. News and World Report, the rankings evaluated more than 17,600 public high schools on factors such as college readiness, college curriculum breadth, state assessment proficiency, state assessment performance, underserved student performance (which takes into account the performance of students who are Black, Hispanic and receiving subsidized school lunch) and graduation rate.

“We rank high schools across the country to give an unbiased look at how well schools serve their students and help you make informed decisions about your child’s education,” the website states. “We also want to recognize high-performing schools and inspire educators and municipalities to do better.

“The top-ranked schools have a high rate of students who scored above expectations in math, science and reading state assessments, passed an array of college-level exams, and graduated in four years.”
