Two Cambridge charter schools were recently ranked among the top performing schools in the state, according to recent state assessment scores.

The Community Charter School of Cambridge and the Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School, both of Cambridge, are two of only 45 schools in the state to be commended by Commissioner Mitchell Chester for high achievement, making strong academic progress or narrowing the achievement gaps between low-income minority and affluent white students.
