Niche began in 2002 by ranking colleges and writing college guidebooks. Three years ago it branched out to ranking places to live and K-12 school districts. The data is collected from numerous sources such as the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, parent and student surveys, and proprietary algorithms and statistical techniques.


“The Aspen School District ranked second out of 168 districts in Colorado and ranks consistently at an A+ level across the board. Those are incredible outcomes and definitely something to be proud of,” says Jess Hair, marketing and outreach coordinator for Niche.
