BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The best area elementary school you’ll almost assuredly never get your kids into is FAU’s Henderson University School. The school, which randomly pulls from varied demographics based on applications received once a year, is free for those lucky enough to get the nod.

The school is now ranked #2 in the United States, according to a new report out by Niche.

This is the advisory issued by FAU on Tuesday:

Florida Atlantic University’s A.D. Henderson University School has been ranked the No. 2 Best Public Elementary School and moved up two spots to the No. 9 Best Public Middle School in America by Niche, the largest website for researching public and private K-12 schools. 

Henderson is also ranked the No. 2 Best Public Elementary School in Florida and No. 2 Best Public Middle School in Florida in the publication’s 2022 rankings. Florida Atlantic University High School was ranked second for Best Public High School in Florida. 

Niche examines thousands of K-12 schools across the United States and ranks them based on a variety of factors, including test scores, student-teacher ratio and reviews from students and parents. For example, Henderson received an A+ in the administration, academics, diversity, college prep, food, and health and safety categories.

“We are incredibly proud of the A.D. Henderson & FAU High School community for this achievement and honor,” said Sherry Bees, principal/director of A.D. Henderson & FAU High School. “This recognition, among others, is a direct relationship of the commitment and determination demonstrated by our faculty, administration, students, and parents. To rise in ranking during such a fraught time in education is a truly remarkable accomplishment.”

Niche uses reviews, surveys and the most up-to-date data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to compare, score and connect data points to analyze schools. For the complete list of the 2022 Best Schools in America rankings, visit www.niche.com/k12/rankings/.
