Several area school districts are included in a Pittsburgh-based research website’s list of top schools in Pennsylvania.

Researchers at Niche examined academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as reviews and other information gathered from users to compile the 2019 Best School Districts rankings. That information — from academics to sports and diversity — was then given a grade.

There are 500 school districts in the state. Local districts that made the top 100 on the website’s Best School Districts in Pennsylvania include:

• 3. Mt. Lebanon

• 6. North Allegheny

• 7. Upper St. Clair

• 10. Fox Chapel Area

• 13. South Fayette

• 18. Quaker Valley

• 24. Hampton

• 42. North Hills

• 45. Pine-Richland

• 49. Greater Latrobe

• 50. Peters Township

• 52. Moon Area

• 62. Franklin Regional

• 70. Montour

• 80. Penn-Trafford

• 84. Seneca Valley

• 87. Hempfield Area

• 91. Baldwin-Whitehall

• 94. Bethel Park

• 95. Avonworth

Among the safest schools in the country — not just in Pennsylvania — Mt. Lebanon was ranked No. 4, while South Fayette came in at No. 12.

As for schools with the best teachers, Mt. Lebanon landed at No. 10, with Upper St. Clair coming in at No. 16, and North Allegheny at No. 21.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
