Education is critical, and many parents are interested in finding the best school to send their child to. One tool that can help assist school selection is the annual rankings of public schools.
Student research group Niche has just released its public school rankings, and it is excellent news for the school that has taken the title of best public school in Oregon.
Niche uses a variety of data measurements, including "ratings from current students, alumni, and parents...and...quantitative data from sources like the U.S. Department of Education to evaluate teachers, resources and facilities, extracurricular activity opportunities, and more."
This information is then used to rank over 92,743 public schools across the United States.
