846

The tables have turned – and the grade givers have been graded. Did your children’s school make top marks?

Online school ratings and statistics website Niche ranked Michigan’s top public elementary schools from one to 100 based on an analysis of the most recent academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education, reviews from students and parents, and self-reported information from the schools themselves – They do this for districts, too.

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.
