(NEXSTAR) – Website Niche released its ranking of the best Indiana private schools for 2022, with the Cranbrook Schools in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. earning the top spot.
The report was released at a time many families are beginning to look at different schooling options for their children, according to Luke Skurman, Founder and CEO of the Niche.
Niche, a platform for “connecting students and families with colleges and schools,” prides itself on not sticking strictly to standardized test scores and academic performance, which might not reflect socioeconomic and racial disparities or unique school policies during the COVID-19 pandemic. For 2022, Niche de-emphasized SAT and ACT scores by one-third.
The company said that it combined ratings directly from current students, alumni and parents, with more quantitative data from sources like the U.S. Department of Education to evaluate teachers; resources and facilities; extracurricular activities; and more.
The top five private schools in Michigan are all located in the mitten, with four of the schools within an hour drive from each other.
- Cranbrook Schools (Bloomfield Hills)
- Detroit Country Day School (Beverly Hills)
- Greenhills School (Ann Arbor)
- The Roeper School – Birmingham Campus (Birmingham)
- Interlochen Arts Academy (Interlochen)
