Study: The best teachers in the US are in these school districts

(NEXSTAR) – During Teacher Appreciation Week every teacher should be thanked and praised for helping to mold and nurture the minds of America’s youth. But anyone with kids always wants to know, “Where can my child get the best education?”

An annual study performed by Niche was able to determine where the school districts with the best teachers can be found in the U.S.

Landing at the top of the list was Mariemont City Schools located just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. The school district is a top-rated, public school system with 1,553 students from grades K-12.

The district not only received an A+ for its teachers, but also for its academics, college prep, and clubs. According to Niche, the average Mariemont teacher makes $83,417 per year. That’s way above the national average of $69,544, says the National Education Association.

In second place for school districts with the best teachers was Scarsdale Union Free School District, a suburb of New York City that has roughly 4,700 K-12 students. Scarsdale also ranked as the top overall public school in Niche’s study of the best public schools in the U.S.
