Some local school district's have been recognized for having some of the best teachers!

It's one of the great strengths of the Capital Region: our great local school systems. And what makes them great? It all starts with the teachers. Some of our local districts recently got recognized for having some of the best teachers in Upstate New York.

NYUP is reporting Niskayuna, Bethlehem and North Colonie have all made Niche.Com's top 25 districts with the best teachers in Upstate New York. NYUP says the rankings were formulated based on '... student-teacher ratio, teacher absenteeism, overall academic grade of the district, teacher salaries and other factors to determine each school's placement.'

So where did our local schools land on the rankings? Niskayuna, which always ranks high on any school list, landed in the top 5 at #4. Bethlehem followed at 13 and North Colonie at 18. I will say based on the reputations of all of our local districts, I am sure different rankings with different formulas would highlight other groups of amazing teachers here in the Capital Region.
