As the 2017-18 school year kicks off, parents and students can see how their school district stacks up against others in the state as Niche.com has released its annual rankings of best schools and school districts in the country.

The 2018 rankings released this month rank elementary, middle and high schools as well as school districts.

In the Golden State, the Silicon Valley area reigns supreme, taking the first three slots on the list of the best districts. The list is led by Palo Alto Unified School District, followed by Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High School District and Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District.

According to Niche, the best school district in the country is the Solon City School District in Solon, Ohio. With an overall Niche grade of A+, the district received a grade of A+ in academics, teachers, clubs and activities, college prep and health and safety. In the category of diversity, Niche awarded the school district an A-.

To arrive at these rankings, Niche looked at data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as test scores, college data and ratings collected from Niche users. The methodology for each category of ranking varied. (Click here for more information on how Niche calculates its rankings.)

Niche assigns a standardized score for each factor, which is then weighted before an overall score is calculated for each school district. The overall scores are again standardized and some districts are disqualified from receiving a final letter grade if there isn’t enough data. School districts are then ranked numerically and assigned grades.

In California, though nearly all of the state’s school districts were given a letter grade, only 162 were ranked in numerical order. Here’s a look at the top 50 rankings for the Golden State:
