Many clients come to us to obtain the best score possible for their student. However, the question many times is “What is that perfect score?” The confusion makes sense given so many standardized tests exist and the many different scoring methods they use. For instance, a perfect college admissions test score on the ACT is a 36. For the SSAT, it went from 2400 back to 1600 in recent years.
Home of the top boarding schools in the world like (Andover) Phillips Academy or Phillips Exeter Academy, we have the list of the top programs which score the best on America’s (and possibly the world’s) standardized test for Massachusetts high schoolers:

SSAT Master’s Top 25 Boarding Schools Ranking
The following is a list I created back in 2015 for a former employer. As you can see, it’s labeled as “SanLi’s” list, but I created the methodology behind this list which I shared with two of the top test prep and college consulting companies in Hong Kong. Both companies have leveraged the list, but only I have the reasoning behind why this set of schools are in the order that you see. I will create another list soon, but in the meantime, please feel free to use this list for reference.
