Westchester Schools Hit Top 10 in Niche List

Schools across the Hudson Valley region landed on the online database’s competitive 2017 rankings.

The rankings are in! Niche, an online database that helps people find suitable schools and neighborhoods, released their 2017 “Best” lists for schools and districts by state.

The method Niche used to put together these rankings analyzed a variety of elements from each school and district. A set of factors were chosen for each category that balanced statistical rigor and practical relevance. Data from each school, collected from U.S. Department of Education and parent/student surveys, was then evaluated. From that data, a finalized score is calculated and a numerical ranking assigned.

Here are a few of the Hudson Valley schools that found themselves on Niche’s yearly list. For more rankings, check here.
