The latest Niche report lists all five Boerne ISD elementary schools among the top 30 elementary campuses in the San Antonio metro area: Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, third; Kendall Elementary, fourth; Cibolo Creek Elementary, fifth; Fabra Elementary, 17th; and Curington Elementary, 30th.

Middle School North is ranked third among middle schools in the area while Middle School South is ranked fourth. In the high school rankings, Champion High School is ranked fifth in the San Antonio metro area and Boerne High School is ranked eighth.

Niche uses a broad range of criteria to develop its rankings. The independent education analysis company reviews statistics along with parent and student responses to surveys in areas covering academics, health and safety, quality of teachers, and student culture and diversity.

"The findings of the Niche report are gratifying and I believe validate what we have believed all along about our teachers and our schools," said Stelmazewski. "Each year, we work hard to do what is right for our students and we are proud when that work is recognized in this way. But we never rest. We always are looking for ways to improve and to grow in our practice of educating our community's children."

The superintendent's State of the District report also reviews other areas of importance to the District, including finance, student enrollment, bond updates and more. The full report can be viewed by going to www.boerne-isd.net/superintendent.

Founded in 2002, Niche focuses its surveys on neighborhoods, colleges and K-12 education. The full list of ranked schools and details on the reporting methodology can be found at k12.niche.com/rankings.
