At the May 3rd meeting of the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee, Superintendent Jim Daly announced that Wells High School had received a Silver Award from US News & World Report in the online magazine’s annual rankings of the nation’s high schools and worldwide institutions of higher learning.

In its “Best High School” category, the magazine ranked Wells High School (based on 2014-15 data) third in the state of Maine and 801 nationally. Falmouth High School ranked number two and the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone ranked number one in the state.

During the meeting, WHS Principal Eileen Sheehy and Assistant Principal Joshua Gould, on behalf of the students and staff at WHS, accepted a WOCSD Certificate of Achievement presented to them by Chair Helena Ackerson and Superintendent Daly.

A “tremendous job” described Superintendent Daly later about WHS’s achievement. He indicated that the Silver Award in 2017 makes the sixth such award that Wells High School has received from US News & World Report since 2012. In 2016, the magazine ranked WHS fifth Best High School in Maine.
