Located just outside of the madness that is often New York City, the towns of Westchester County are popular destinations for people who may work in the city, but don’t want to live or raise children there.
Education review website Niche recently released a ranking of the best public school districts in the country. We’ve pulled out the top 10 districts in Westchester County from their list, with Edgemont School District taking the number one spot.
Niche rankings are based on a combination of user reviews and education statistics sourced from the government and public databases. According to Niche, “A high ranking 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.”
Student and alumni reviews also show a lot of school pride. As one recent alumnus writes at Niche, “The teachers at Edgemont are really above and beyond, for the most part. The newly revitalized administration is also working to keep the standards of schools high.”
Here are the top 10 public school districts in Westchester County, via Niche:
