Do You Agree? These Are The Top Ranked Schools In North Carolina For 2024

As a parent, part of moving to a new area is determining which area has a great school district. Niche.com helped out and delivered the top ranked schools for 2024 in the Charlotte area. The question now is do you agree?

I can’t lie. I have always wondered where someone could go to get a non-biased opinion of schools beyond some general places. I recently found out about Niche and this really came in and answered many if not all questions someone could have about a school in a certain district, area, or state. Most of the analytics on each school break down if the school is a great school for teachers. This helps a teacher who that may be looking to switch states and not sure where to start. Not only does this show how the schools are ranked per state, but it also shows the best schools for athletes.

One of the big things that I enjoyed seeing in high schools was the breakdowns of SAT and ACT scores. They even gave the graduation percentage rate. That is a big deal because you learn just how well some schools are actually performing and how well some of them aren’t.

  • Bessimer City Early College High School

    Some of these schools are outside of the Charlotte area, but Niche.com has them categorized. Bessimer City Early College High is located in Dallas, NC. The school is rated 2nd out of 56 for best magnet schools in NC. It’s also rated 6th out of 618 for best public high schools and ranked 26th out of 587 for best public high school for teachers in NC. On the academic level, they are off the charts with a 90% graduation rate.

    Next, we will take it over to Waxhaw, NC. Marvin Ridge is a great school for athletes. It’s ranked 5th out of 627 for best school for athletes in North Carolina.
