After taking a deep dive into the data and looking at school districts around the country, BackgroundChecks.org has found some interesting trends that may suggest what factors play a role in making a school district one of the top districts in the country and what may leave some districts behind. While grades and test scores are important, there is more to a great school district than just the numbers on a report card.
The Top 100 School District ranking for 2019 was determined by assessing crucial scholastic and financial metrics, including the student-to-teacher ratio, standardized test scores, teacher quality, graduation rate, and school funding for over 10,000 schools in the U.S. Information was gathered from the databases at the National Center for Education Statistics and the U.S. Department of Education.
