Of course, I am not surprised to see Tiverton so near the top! More importantly, what makes this school truly wonderful was not even measured for this ranking. It's a little school with a BIG heart.

My son is graduating from Tiverton High this year and has received an excellent education there. Teachers, guidance, and office staff always quick to respond to any concerns and kudos. Very friendly and easy to approach. Intelligent, wise and professional through and through.

Before jumping up and down look at the stats. Giving15% weighting for per pupil spending and student/teacher ratio, when test scores only count for 10% each? Each catergory of SAT score is less than 500, verbal 493, math 496, writing 496, on state test - 86% proficient in reading, 34% in math, 60% in writing and 85.5 grad rate nothing to celebrate about. Ranking is very misleading and this from lowest ranked state in New England.
