Niche Releases Rankings of Capital Region Public High Schools for 2023
Last year, we broke down the rankings from Niche, a prominent online resource for families and their kids, of the best public high schools in the Capital Region in 2022. As we entered the new year, however, Niche updated their data, and released new rankings of schools in the area in 2023.
As you'll see in the photo galleries below, there weren't any drastic changes to the list from last year to this year. That said, some schools did move up and down in this year's rankings, and we'll tell you why.
One notable addition to the list: Averill Park High School, which checks in as the No. 10 school in this year's rankings, after not cracking the Top 10 a year ago. Averill Park replaced Troy High School, which occupied that spot on the list a year ago.
The ranking system is based on an overall "letter grade" that is assigned to each school. The overall grade is a "sum" of grades given for specific criteria, including teachers, food, college prep, diversity and more.
Without further ado, here is this year's official Niche list of the top ten public high schools in the Capital Region. Did your local school make the grade?
