It’s no secret that Fairfield County is home to some of the finest school districts in the Nutmeg State.
A newly released study from Niche.com determined the best school districts for 2020 nationwide by analyzing the “key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents” using data from the U.S. Department of Education.
Among the statistics that came into factor the rankings include state test scores, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, public school district ratings, and others, which were on a weighted scale.
