4-21-20 A Top Ranking to Celebrate
Posted 04/26/2020 03:19PM

April 21, 2020

 Dear WPS Families and Staff;

 We thought some good news was arriving this week, and here it is: WHS placed second in Connecticut, and a lofty 202 nationally (out of nearly 18,000 high schools), in U.S. News & World Report's annual ranking of high schools.  The link below gives you the story:

 We celebrate these rankings for good reason, while also recognizing that the specific placement of high schools on such a list is not always a valid or reliable indicator of true quality.  The key is to look at the "bands" and "groupings" for a particular school.  In that regard, we are feeling good about how we have done overall, and can examine areas that might indicate a need for improvement.  All in all, three cheers to all our students and staff across the district, who work so hard to ensure that WHS is recognized as one of the top high schools in CT and nationally. 

 Final comment: Principal Wolak asked that this blast celebrate the entire district, but I am pulling rank and making sure we give a shout out to Lisa and all the WHS teachers and administrators for their exceptional effort and results.

 Be well.

 

Bill
