Jackson Hole High School

Jackson Hole High School

High schools in Jackson outstrip their counterparts from around the state.

That's according to rankings from Niche, a website that grades college, neighborhoods and workplaces around the country. Both the Jackson Hole Community School and Mountain Academy received A-plus rankings from the site, while Jackson Hole High School was rated the No. 1 public high school in the state.

Niche accounts for a multitude of factors in its rankings, though it weighs academic performance heavily, at about 60% of a school's score. In addition to academics, Niche looks at culture and diversity; parent and student surveys; and how well teachers perform and are paid, among other things. The data it uses comes from the U.S. Department of Education.

The two private schools are the only ones in Wyoming that Niche gives an A-plus rating. What that all means is that, at least according to Niche, wherever a high schooler ends up in Teton County, they have a good shot at a solid education.
