Niche, formerly known as College Prowler, publishes reviews of school districts. Niche restricts the number of districts reviewed to a "Top 25" list of districts located in major metro areas. It also provides a "Best School Districts" list.
A typical review of a school district on Niche consists of a district's state ranking, as concluded by Niche, and to what degree a district possesses certain criteria that qualify its ranking on Niche.com. Some criteria Niche uses to review and rank a district include academics, educational outcomes, food and teachers. Niche also publishes each reviewed district's graduation, dropout and math proficiency percentages in relation to national averages.
