If you’re looking for the best public elementary schools in Virginia – look no further than Arlington and the surrounding areas of Northern Virginia. Niche, a school rating site and directory, has unveiled their rankings for the best elementary schools in Virginia for 2017, and Arlington dominated the top 10, as other areas in Northern Virginia also preformed very well.

Arlington Traditional Elementary School ranked number 1 on the list, followed by Henry Elementary School in 2nd place, and McKinley Elementary School in 3rd – and seven other Arlington schools before Falls Church’s Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, which ranked 11th place.

“The 2017 Best Public Elementary Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education,” Niche states on their website. “Ranking factors include state test scores, student-teacher ratio, student diversity, teacher quality, grade school ratings, and the overall quality of the school district.”
