Best School Districts in Oakland County

See how your local school district stacks up against the best in the county.

Choosing a school district can have a huge impact on your student’s academic journey.

Some districts in Oakland County have better scores than others. Niche, a data-analyzing website focused on schools, has graded some of the best school districts in Oakland County.

The results stem from multiple ranking factors including teacher quality, state test scores, graduation rates and more. Notably, SAT/ACT scores have been removed from its ranking factors to “reflect a general de-emphasis on test scores in the college admissions process,” Niche says.  Read more on how this ranking was calculated.
