In its annual rankings, Niche strives to give those researching schools a full snapshot of a school — not just providing an overall ranking, but also detailing how a school performs academically and on the sports field, the strength of the administration and how diverse a school is. They pull data from a number of sources, including the U.S. Department of Education, the National Center of Education Statistics, student and parent surveys and more. Some adjustments were made in the 2022 report to account for modifications schools had to make during the pandemic.
