Each year Niche.com surveys the over 48,000 elementary schools in the United States, and their scoring is based on academics (assessment proficiency), teachers (salaries, absenteeism, state test results), culture and diversity (racial and economic), overall analysis of academic and student life and reviews from thousands of students and parents.
