Niche, a Pittsburgh-based website for researching schools has released its list of the top 100 public high schools in Massachusetts.
Four high schools from the Cape and Islands made the cut.
Nauset Regional High School in North Eastham was the highest rated at #32 followed by Sturgis Charter Public School in Hyannis at #44.
Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in Oak Bluffs was ranked the 51st best public high school in the state and Barnstable High School was ranked as the 80th best public high school in the state.
Ranking was based on several factors including state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT and ACT scores and teacher quality.
The rankings also show a trend. The top-rated schools reside in the state’s wealthier communities like Lexington, Cambridge, Newton, and Wellesley.
