Niche, an organization that researches and rates schools across the U.S., recently released a list of the top ranked public schools in Oregon. Niche takes into account government data, student opinions, as well as original research.

High ranks indicate that students are happy with their learning and social experience, that there are a variety of learning resources available, that the population is diverse and accepting, and that students are actively involved in extracurriculars.
