Here's How Your Child's School Ranks In North Carolina And The Country

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro school system has been ranked the best school district in North Carolina by Niche, a website that provides rankings on neighborhoods and schools. In addition to being ranked No. 1 in the state, Chapel Hill-Carrboro was ranked No. 202 nationally out of 10,574 districts on Niche’s 2018 Best School Districts in America List. Chapel Hill-Carrboro earned its high rankings based on factors such as test scores, graduation rate, quality of the teachers, diversity and student suspension and absenteeism rates. Niche touts the ratings as being rigorous. But there’s also some subjectivity since the ratings are based in part on survey responses from parents and students.
