Winchester High School was designated as a 2012 Commendation School by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
WHS was one of only 64 schools out of all elementary, middle and high schools across the state to receive this designation.
“In Massachusetts, we set a high bar for proficiency and hold our students and teachers accountable for results," said Education Commissioner Mitchell Chester. "The school’s recognition as a Commendation School for high achievement, high growth, and/or narrowing proficiency gaps demonstrates your hard work and commitment to ensuring that all students meet the high standards and expectations we set for them.
Your school should take great pride in the collective efforts to prepare all students for success in the world that awaits them beyond school,” Chester added.
The Commendation School designation is based on the 2012 MCAS results.
