The Webb Schools ranked #1 among national boarding schools in America! Says who? Says me! I know a lot of boarding schools and I’ve worked in education for 23 years so why can’t I say that Webb is number one?! Sounds a bit ridiculous when you think about it, doesn’t it? After all, I am not an expert on every boarding school in America, and I have hardly done a national in-depth comparison on the best high schools. Yet, I can make a public announcement that Webb ranked number one and it might take people a while to catch on that I am basing this rank entirely on my own bias and subjective opinion. After all, I bet our friends at such schools as Cate, Thacher, Exeter, Andover, Choate, or Deerfield might consider themselves to be #1; and if I worked at one of those schools, I might agree. However, the fact is that it is virtually impossible to put a numerical ranking to any of these schools, and the only thing we can agree on is that they are ALL great boarding schools.
