MYSTIC VALLEY REGIONAL CHARTER HIGH SCHOOL RANKED SECOND BEST IN MASSACHUSETTS BY NEWSWEEK MAGAZINE
Once again the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School has received top tier recognition from a national magazine. Newsweek magazine ranked the top 1,000 high schools in the United States and put Mystic Valley very high on their list. Mystic Valley was ranked as the 2nd best high school in Massachusetts, the 23rd best charter school in the country and the 122nd best overall public high school in the United States!
Founding member and Secretary of the Mystic Valley Board of Trustees Thomas E. Brennan Esq. said that “the success of our school is due largely to the dedicated teachers and staff at Mystic Valley. Without their day to day efforts the school would not have been able to achieve such remarkable success. The Board of Trustees can only set the agenda and goals it is the teachers and staff who are charged with insuring that these goals are met.
The Newsweek top ranking is just the latest in a series of outstanding rankings from national news organizations. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Mystic Valley as a top high school in America three times in the last five years. Newsweek has ranked the school among the top 1% of schools in the country for four years in a row and last year the Washington Post also ranked Mystic Valley as one of the top high schools in America.

It is a testament to the hard work and long hours that our students and teachers put in day in and day out while fulfilling our mission of providing the opportunity of a world class education. Congratulations to our whole school community for achieving this honor.”
