"To assemble this year’s Best Schools list, we spent months compiling numbers — released by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education — from 147 municipalities in Greater Boston,” according to Boston Magazine. “The schools in the cities and towns that topped our proprietary ranking stood out across 20 different categories, including student-to-teacher ratio, average class size, expenditures per pupil, rate of college matriculation, and results on tests such as the SAT and the MCAS.”
