How Good is Your School? New Rankings Give Buyers a Way to Evaluate Schools, School Districts

If the quality of area schools ranks high on your list of important real estate considerations, buyers can now use a new set of rankings for schools nationwide. Niche.com, a rankings and review site, has just released its list of “2016 Best Schools,” a ranking of public and private schools K-12th grade, and school districts nationwide. In its evaluation process, Niche considers state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, student and parent reviews, and more.

Suffern High School ranked 53rd out of the top 100 NY schools.Niche.com's nationwide list of all high schools finds 11 New York schools in the top 50, including No. 19 Rye High School, No. 40 Chappaqua’s Horace Greeley High School, No. 46 Scarsdale High School and No. 50 Blind Brook High School in Rye Brook.

According to the study, the top 5 public high schools are: No. 1. Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, N.Y., No. 2 High Technology High School in Lincroft, N.J., No. 3. Staten Island Technical High School in Staten Island, N.Y., No. 4. Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Virginia, and No. 5 Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Illinois.

Statewide, five Rockland high schools were in the Top 100. Topping the list was Suffern High School, at number 50, followed by Tappan Zee High at number 60. In third place county wise is Clarkstown High School South at No. 71, followed by Clarkstown High School North at No. 88, and Nyack Senior High School just making it in the top 100 at No. 98.Nanuet Senior High School landed at No. 132, and Pearl River High School was ranked at No. 322.

The survey also breaks down schools by 15 other characteristics, including best facilities, best high school sports, best teachers, and even best food. Ironically, the school rated as having the best food is the William T. McFatter Technical Center in Davie, Florida. It scored A ratings for academics, administration, educational outcomes, food and student culture and diversity. As might be expected, it scored a D- in sports and fitness.
