Boston magazine’s annual list of the best public high schools in the region is out, and one school is hanging onto the top spot.

Acton-Boxborough High School once again topped the list. The Acton school has an enrollment of 1,751 and a graduation rate of 98%. Boston magazine’s annual ranking used the most recent available data on enrollment, student-teacher ratio, test scores, graduation and college attendance rates, and advanced placement proficiency to determine the top schools. The magazine only ranked schools in towns or district within, or partially within, I-495.

This year, Boston magazine included the median household income and home price for each of the high school’s towns. 

“At a time when the opportunity gap in schools is top of mind, there is increased scrutiny over the factoring of test scores, which tend to be correlated with higher family incomes and are increasingly regarded as an inadequate measure of student achievement,” the publication wrote.

Boston Latin School, number 15 on the list, was the only school in the top 25 with a median income below $100,000, at $71,115. 

The top 10 schools on the list along with the Median Income are:
Acton-Boxborough Regional High School - $136K
Wayland High School - $185K
Weston High School - $207K
Littleton High School - $123K
Dover-Sherborn Regional High School - $228K
Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School - $174K
Lexington High School - $186K
The Bromfield School - $156K
Manchester Essex Regional High School - $131K
Winchester High School - $169K
