Boston Latin School and Cambridge Rindge and Latin School are among the top five feeder schools to Harvard, according to recently released admission statistics published recently in the Boston Sunday Globe. Boston Latin had 21 students accepted to Harvard, in second place after Stuyvesant High in New York City.
Cambridge Rindge and Latin School had the fourth most students admitted to Harvard with 12 acceptances – placing CRLS between New England prep schools Phillips Academy, Andover, and Phillips Exeter Academy.
CRLS is the only school in the group without advanced admissions standards or entrance exam requirements, serving as more proof that CRLS is becoming one of the best public high schools in the state.
Massachusetts led the nation in having the highest acceptance rate at Harvard, with nearly 12 percent of Bay State applicants getting the nod, followed by New York, at 9.5 percent. This year’s acceptance rate for the entire applicant pool was a record low of 7 percent.
CRLS seniors also earned three acceptances to MIT.
