This past spring Wells High School was awarded a “Silver Award” by U.S. News & World Report and ranked 5th Best High School in Maine. This is the fifth year in a row that WHS has attained a top ranking from this national online magazine.

On May 4th, the WOCSD School Committee recognized Wells High School students and staff for this achievement. At the meeting Superintendent Daly stated that the current ranking was based on 2015 data. He expressed how proud he was that the students maintained this high standard given the fact they were in the midst of building construction.

WHS Assistant Principal, Josh Gould, accepted a Certificate of Achievement from the School Committee on behalf of the school and Principal Eileen Sheehy.

"We're extremely proud of the recognition received for the hard work of our students and teachers and extremely thankful to the parents and community members for the tremendous support we receive," commented Gould.
