Congratulations to our School Committee, our Superintendent, the administration, the faculty, the staff, parents, students, and the community for Wayland's strong showing in the latest Boston Magazine "Best of Boston" ranking of Boston-area public high schools.

If asked, I suspect that our educators would comment (as they have in the past) along the lines of, "We're pleased when we rank well, mildly bemused when we don't, and regardless, committed to offering a rich educational experience that transcends simple measurement."
