About Best Public Elementary and Middle Schools
U.S. News numerically ranked more than 47,000 K-8 schools nationwide this year. All data for the rankings are from third-party sources, including the U.S. Department of Education.
Schools were assessed on their pupils’ proficiencies in mathematics and reading, as measured by state assessment tests. Half of the ranking formula was the results themselves; the other half was the results in the context of socioeconomic demographics; top-ranked schools are high-achieving ones that succeeded in educating all students.
U.S. News has published an in-depth methodology article that provides more information about rankings and how they are calculated.
