U.S. News and World Report based their rankings of over twenty two thousand public high schools on college readiness, with a focus on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate participation and success rate. Five hundred high schools nationally were given gold medals, with twelve in Connecticut earning this distinction. Both Conard and Hall were awarded the gold medal designation.
Both Conard and Hall stand out in the list of top ten schools in that they are large, comprehensive high schools that educate a diverse student body, and provide opportunities for all students, regardless of social or economic factors, to succeed. West Hartford has always been proud of its schools, and this recognition acknowledges the students, parents, teachers and administrators for their hard work. West Hartford’s commitment to education is well known throughout our state, and, as this illustrates, the nation.
