Check out our new feature available only on SchoolDigger: rankings for different groups of students in Massachusetts!

Every year, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education shares test results for various student groups in each school. We use these results to find out which schools do best for each group and list them from the best to the worst.

Additionally, we also compare the performance of the subgroup to the performance of the school as a whole. This makes it easy to see if, for example, African American students are overperforming or underperforming their peers in each school.


Year after year, SchoolDigger is always the first to publish Massachusetts test scores and rankings. Other sites use stale test score data that are several years old! Be in the know with the very latest performance metrics.

The list is updated annually upon the release of the MCAS Next Generation test scores by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The most recent update was on Tuesday, September 19, 2023.
