    Default How does a Wayland education fare internationally?

    Judging how Wayland students measure up on the international stage is a complex endeavor. With that caveat in mind, here's a window into that comparison.

    1. Wayland scores among the best in the state

    2. Massachusetts scores among the best in the nation (this is for reading; math and science also available)

    3. Massachusetts scores among the best in the world

    None of these is comprehensive (I didn't track down all ages and all subjects, for instance). And none of these measures is necessarily even a great measure that captures everything important about an education. But it's a start.
