  This week Mystic Valley Regional Charter School (MVRCS) was ranked the eighth-best high school in Massachusetts as determined by U.S. News & World Report in its annual list of Best High Schools in America. Mystic Valley moved up three notches from its 11th-place position in 2021 out of the 378 high schools in Massachusetts. The school also ranked in the top 2 percent nationally and was named the 80th-best charter school in the country.

  “Mystic Valley’s robust academic program, dedicated teaching staff, and the presence of a board that is unwavering in its support for our mission and curriculum are the difference makers for our students,” said Director/Superintendent Alex Dan. “Beginning in the early grade levels with Direct Instruction Reading, Saxon Math, and the Core Knowledge philosophy, Mystic Valley is able to lay the foundation that leads to success in high school with the Great Books literature program and the International Baccalaureate. MVRCS equips its hardworking students with the resources they need to maximize their talents, while preparing them for success beyond high school.”

  Mystic Valley has ranked in the top 3 percent of high schools in Massachusetts and the United States nine times over the last decade. It has been named one of the top 10 high schools in Massachusetts in seven of the last 10 years and 11th in the other two years it was listed.

  “The consistency with which Mystic Valley has attained these high rankings from U.S. News and other unbiased sources, along with the fact that the school is in same category as exam schools such as Boston Latin or affluent communities such as Lexington and Weston, is simply remarkable,” added MVRCS Board of Trustees Chair George Warren. “This proves undeniably that the school is a model in public education.”

  Approximately 24,000 schools appeared in the 2022 rankings, which were based on performance on standardized tests, graduation rates and how well schools prepare students for college.
