Superintendent Armand Pires and Principal John Murray are pleased to announce that Medway High School has been awarded a 2021 College Success Award and College Success Award–Gold by GreatSchools, recognizing the school’s continued work ensuring students are prepared for the college admissions process and for success in college.

In addition to the 2021 College Success Award, Medway High School was recognized with the College Success Award–Gold, a new elevated level of distinction celebrating schools with a multiyear track record of postsecondary success. MHS was also recognized with College Success Awards in 2019 and 2020.

According to GreatSchools, a national nonprofit organization, 90% of Medway High School graduates enrolled in an institution of higher learning, and 95% completed their first year of college and returned for a second year. Both percentages are higher than the state average. The school’s profile with additional data can be found here.

The College Success Award was created in 2018 to highlight public secondary schools that not only send students to college, but prepare them for the challenges that higher education can present. 

Medway High School was selected as one of 91 Massachusetts schools and 1,838 schools nationwide to receive the 2021 award. It was one of 87 Massachusetts schools and 1,770 schools nationwide to be recognized with the College Success Award–Gold.

“We are excited to have received this award once again and to be additionally recognized for a multiyear track record of success in college readiness,” Principal Murray said. “We aim to provide a multitude of educational opportunities and resources for our students to help them be successful after they leave our district, and this award reflects that work. Even more so, this award is a credit to the dedication of our staff members and the work ethic of our students.”
