Original post made by CoolSchool on Jun 1, 2012
One of Massachusetts' public high schools has a 97 percent graduation rate and a dropout rate of less than .02 percent (3 out of 1,323 students). It ranks among the highest percentage of students scoring advanced or proficient in the 2011 MCAS assessments (97% in Language Skills; 85% in Math; and 91% in Science.) The school valedictorian is headed to M.I.T. this fall and over 70% of the senior class is on its way to college.
The school posting this incredible set of outcomes is Shawsheen Technical High School in Billerica. Shawsheen is a vocational high school producing the next generation of skilled craftsmen and talented technicians for local private employers all through the region.
