Niche.com released their 2019 Best School Districts rankings this week. Harborfields placed as the 100th best district in the country, and 20th best in New York State! Overall, the district holds an A+ Niche Grade. Congratulations to everyone within the Harborfields family for this outstanding distinction!

This is the fifth year Niche.com has released these rigorously researched rankings. Pulling from public data and over 100 million reviews and survey responses, Niche seeks to provide insight of the quality of education a school district provides for students. Although the ranking includes key statistics and opinions, the overall placement is determined by a grade in the following criteria: academics, health and safety, student culture and diversity, survey responses, teachers, resources and facilities, extracurricular activities and sports and fitness.

High rankings indicate the district’s excellence—exceptional teachers, ample resources, and diverse, high-achieving students who rate their educational experiences highly.
