Uxbridge High School named a 2020 U.S. News & World Report 2020 Best High School
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Frank Tiano is proud to announce that Uxbridge High School is a 2020 Best High School, based on rankings that U.S. News & World Report published April 21, 2020. Over 24,000 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia were reviewed and 18,000 were ranked. The information presented in the Best High Schools rankings is for the 2017-2018 academic year and is collected from independent third parties such as the U.S. Department of Education, The College Board, and official state assessment data. According to this report, Uxbridge High School is ranked 4,412 nationally and 120 in Massachusetts, among the top 25% of all schools in the country.
“Our educators and staff do not do the work that they do for rankings or recognition; they do it for the students and the families of Uxbridge,” Dr. Tiano said. “However, it is exciting and cause for a brief celebration to have our work and continued efforts validated by a national publication.”
UHS Principal Michael Rubin has been at the helm of Uxbridge High School for five years. He has worked collaboratively with his staff and district offices to push his school to be the best that it can be.
“We have watched our metrics improve each year, and we acknowledge that there is still work to be done,” Mr. Rubin said. “We see how close we are to even jumping up higher in the rankings, and we remain focused on those goals, not because of numbers, but because the tactics that get us there are good for students. “The commitment and energy our staff put into our daily efforts with students is truly impressive. Acclaim like this is validating for them and the community alike.”
