This List Shows the Best School District in Every State

What's the top district in your state?

Every parent wants to give their kid the best education possible but it can be hard to know which school district is providing the highest quality schooling for students. From class size to test scores to what the school offers, school quality can be different for every parent. But that doesn’t mean that some places won’t try to standardize what makes a good school district, and a crappy one.

On that note, Stacker gathered data from Niche to determine the best school district in all 50 states to give parents in every part of the country the knowledge of where they should send their kids if they want them to receive a top-notch education.

Niche’s selection of the top district in every state is based on the student to teacher ratio, reading and math proficiency, graduation rate, expenditure per student, and average teacher salary. You can see the entire list below to discover which district in your state is providing the best education for its students.
