Just in time for the start of the 2017 back to school season, Niche.com released its annual rankings of the best school districts in the country.
To arrive at these rankings, Niche looked at data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as test scores, college data and ratings collected from Niche users. The methodology for each category of ranking varied.
Niche assigns a standardized score for each factor, which is then weighted before an overall score is calculated for each school district. The overall scores are again standardized and some districts are disqualified from receiving a final letter grade if there isn’t enough data. School districts are then ranked numerically and assigned grades.
Here are the top school districts in Bucks County according to Niche:
#12 Central Bucks School District, Doylestown
#18 Council Rock School District, Newtown
#33 New Hope-Solebury School District
#46 Pennsbury School District
