What's the BEST Public High School in the Capital Region?

When it comes to public high schools in the Capital Region, there's no shortage of great ones - and shout out to all of the teachers and educators who shape and mold our kids.

With that being said, bragging rights are on the line here, and there's a new number # 1 when it comes to the best public high schools in the Capital Region based upon data released by Niche.com, a company that runs a ranking and review site.

Here's how Niche.com ranked the Ten Best Public High Schools in the Capital Region for 2022:

Congrats to Shaker for being named the # 1 Public High School in the area.  Niche gave high marks to the North Colonie School for its excellent teacher-studio ratio as well as student success.
