Great news for Saratoga County: A local high school was recently recognized as one of the best high schools in the entire country! Not only do parents in our community have bragging rights, but property values are expected to go up.
US News & World Report ranked 22,000 high schools and found Ballston Spa High School to be in the top 7% at number 1,374. The school received a silver award for student achievement and its focus on college readiness.
The rankings are determined by four primary considerations:
- Students perform better than expected in their state
- Disadvantaged students perform better than the state average
- Student graduation rates meet or exceed a national standard
- Students are prepared for college-level coursework.
If you happen to own a home in Ballston Spa, Ballston, Malta, Milton, or Charlton, this ranking is expected to have a positive impact on your property value.
This isn’t the first time Ballston Spa has received national attention: A Ballston Spa teen won a national mentorship contest earlier this year, the school’s robotics team competed in a world championship in 2013, and Ballston Spa High School also made this Best High Schools list in 2012.
