It’s no secret that the Hudson Valley is home to some of the nation’s finest public school districts.
But which top the list?
Niches rankings are “based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education.”
Using a weighted scale that includes academic grades (50 percent), teacher’s grades (15 percent), culture and diversity (10 percent), parent-student surveys (10 percent) and other factors (which can be found here), Niche determined the top school districts throughout the country.
