A top-notch standing, according to Niche, “indicates that the district contains great schools with exceptional teachers, sufficient resources, and a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experiences very highly.” The deciding factors behind their 8,738 school district-wide analysis were a mix of statistical ratings, data, and millions of reviews from students and parents alike.
