Concord (and CCHS) are certainly at the top of the list of schools, but it really is a subjective list to arrive at truly the "best". For every measure, you could find another district with a better measure. Important to keep in mind too that Massachusetts schools are among the best in the country, so to even be in the top 10 here means the schools are among the very best nationwide.
