Greater Boston’s best school districts: the latest rankings

by Alonzo Turner


Lexington Public Schools is the best school district Greater Boston, according to educational rankings and review site Niche. Real estate agents should take note.

Evaluating on criteria including academics, teacher performance, available resources and the quality of the schools’ facilities (among others), as well as parent and student survey results collected by Niche, the rating site counted down the top school districts in Greater Boston, and found a pattern of excellence among the area’s districts – particularly in Lexington (which was ranked No. 15 nationwide).

The top 10 districts in Boston all received academic and teacher grades of A+, while resource and facilities grades trailed slightly, with no district scoring below a B+.

As one of the single-most important determining factors for families looking to change areas, Niche’s district evaluations provide a unique weapon for an agent’s sales artillery – and an opportunity to further demonstrate their authority as a neighborhood expert.
