One of the main considerations for families looking to relocate is choosing a city based on how well its school district – and ultimately, its students – perform. Some of these differences in performance stem from the additional resources certain school districts have access to, which, in turn, lead to better scholastic conditions and a stronger education for students involved.

BackgroundChecks.org’s Top School District Rankings were determined by assessing crucial scholastic and financial metrics, including student-to-teacher ratio, standardized test scores, teacher quality, graduation rate, and school funding for over 10,000 schools in the US. Data was gathered from databases at the National Center for Education Statistics and the U.S. Department of Education.
