Marks the second time in two years Boston Schools have made the list
Boston Latin School, the oldest public school in America, has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as one of this year’s National Blue Ribbon Schools. The designation is given to schools that are to be commended for their overall academic excellence or for their success in closing achievement gaps. This is the second consecutive year schools in Boston have been recognized with the honor. Last year, Boston Latin Academy and John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science were recognized.
“Boston Latin School is highly deserving of this honor,” said Superintendent Carol R. Johnson. “We can all take pride in the work done each day at the school to help students learn, grow, and excel.”
Boston Latin School consistently ranks as one of the highest performing schools in the state and is often recognized by national media, such as the annual U.S. News and World Reports listing, as one of the country’s best schools.
