Lyme-Old Lyme High School has received high placements in US News & World Report’s 2021 ‘Best High Schools in America’ rankings.

LYME/OLD LYME — Lyme-Old Lyme High School (LOLHS) has again been recognized as a top-performing high school both statewide and nationally in the latest U.S. News & World Report ‘Best High Schools in America’ rankings.

More than 17,800 public high schools (traditional, charter, and magnet) were evaluated in the 2021 report and LOLHS came in at 11th place in the state of Connecticut and also gained 564th place in the country. Moreover, if solely traditional schools are considered, LOLHS takes ninth place in Connecticut, while notably, the majority of the ‘Top 10’ schools in the state are located in Fairfield County.

“This ranking is a reflection of our teachers, staff, and community and their commitment to developing and becoming skilled problem-solvers, effective communicators and contributing citizens,” said Lyme-Old Lyme Schools  Superintendent Ian Neviaser.

He added, “I commend all of our staff PK-12 for the leadership and dedication shown each and every day. Their work is reflected in this great honor.”

To determine the rankings, US News & World Report evaluates schools on six criteria: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates. College readiness specifically measures participation and performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams.

Lyme-Old Lyme High School serves 450 students in grades 9 through 12 and is located in the historic district of Old Lyme, CT.
