Top-ranked districts overall

Here are Massachusetts' top scoring school districts on the Spring 2002 MCAS exam. Only the 212 school systems that contain all the grades for which scores were released -- 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 10th grades -- are listed below. That disqualifies most districts with regional high schools. A separate ranking of all 10th grades, which includes regional high schools, is available here.
