How did we create this ranking of the worst high schools in Connecticut?
We strongly believe that college readiness is the best way to measure high schools’ performance.
So we reviewed the SAT test scores for more than 190 schools across Connecticut and picked the lowest performers.
While SAT scores are not perfect they are accepted by thousands of universities as a reliable assessment.
Please note that some small charter and alternative schools were omitted from this ranking for the sake of relevancy.
The percentages below reflect the percentage of students within each school who have met standards for that particular subject in the SAT exam.
