A new report ranks Middletown High School in the top high schools in Rhode Island.

To be eligible for a state ranking, a school must be awarded a national gold or silver medal. Middletown earned a silver medal.

She added congratulations to our outstanding Middletown staff...It all starts in Kindergarten and builds!
