The Jericho School District was named the best school district in the United States by, taking almost 12,000 school districts into consideration.

Jericho was also named the safest school district in New York, seventh safest in the United States and the best place to teach in New York, and third best in the United States. Jericho’s elementary schools, middle school and high school were also highly ranked.


“Having Jericho ranked as the best school district in America is an incredible honor and accomplishment.  It is a testament to the supportive Jericho school community, the highly dedicated teachers and staff, and a collaborative and involved board of education,” said Superintendent Hank Grishman. “The fact that our school district is open enrollment and accessible to all students who are residents further emphasizes the significance of this accomplishment. What also makes this list so noteworthy is that the criteria goes well beyond test scores – several other meaningful factors are considered, including student and parent reviews, diversity, and student/teacher ratio.”

Niche rigorously analyzes data from the U.S. Department of Education and over 60 million K-12 school reviews and survey responses to formulate their lists.
