How rating sites rank Jefferson Elementary
Embedded in the images below are hotlinks to how the Jefferson Elementary School in Franklin, Massachusetts is reviewed and ranked on four prominent rating sites for public elementary schools.
Three of the four sites give either “A” or “4 star” ratings to Jefferson. Only GreatSchools.org was less laudatory about the school. But the downgrade seems to be due to a weighted rating system used by the GreatSchools site. GreatSchools says it imposes higher standards of performance on schools in affluent school districts. These elevated standards can lower the grades that schools receive from GreatSchools. Fairly or unfairly, this appears to explain why Jefferson’s rating on GreatSchools.org is only a “6.”
