It’s no secret that the Hudson Valley is home to some of the nation’s finest schools

But which high schools in New York are at the top the list?

On Wednesday, Niche released its 2019 rankings, which 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 (60 percent), teacher’s grades (10 percent), culture and diversity (10 percent), parent-student surveys (10 percent) and other factors (which can be found here ), Niche determined the top high schools throughout the country.

"The 2019 Best Public High Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, and high school ratings."
