Ranking factors included state test scores, student-teacher ratio, student body diversity, teacher quality, grade school ratings and an overall assessment of the school district, Niche notes.

Each institution on the list has also been given four grades: one for academics, another for culture and diversity, teachers, plus an overall Niche grade.
