Hanover's Ray School Ranked Best in the Upper Valley
and 22nd in the state.
Niche.com just released its 2017 list of Best Public Elementary Schools in New Hampshire. The top-ranked school in the Upper Valley was Hanover's Bernice Ray School at number 22 on the list.
The site gave the school A's for academics and teachers but only a C+ for diversity. (Diversity is calculated by racial and economic diversity. In Hanover only 4 percent of students qualify for free or reduced lunches.)
Niche.com bases its rankings on public databases, including U.S. Department of Education, Census Bureau and Common Core data.
