It’s no secret that Long Island is home to some of the finest school districts in the Empire State.

A newly released study from Niche.com determined the best school districts for 2020 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.

The complete methodology can be found here .

  • Great Neck Public Schools (first overall);
