Hart’s Hill Elementary School Awarded Badge for Ranking Among Best Elementary Schools in New York State

Best Elementary Schools 2024 badge

Hart’s Hill Elementary School has been awarded a badge by U.S. News and World Report for ranking in the top 40% of elementary schools in New York State. The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 37,000 public elementary schools nationwide.

Hart’s Hill Elementary School is ranked 353rd among New York elementary schools with an overall rating of 80.09/100. Public elementary schools that earned U.S. News rankings in the top 40% in their state gained eligibility to display a U.S. News award badge.

For each state, schools were assessed on their pupils’ proficiencies in mathematics and reading, as measured by state assessment tests. Half of the ranking formula was the results themselves; the other half was the results in the context of socioeconomic demographics. In other words, the top-ranked schools are high-achieving ones that succeeded in educating all of their students.

“The faculty and staff of Hart's Hill Elementary School consistently work cooperatively to meet the needs of our students,” said Principal Lisa Putnam. “I am so proud of our accomplishments and this well-deserved recognition.”
