UPDATE: The Business Review has  released the latest ranking for 2014.  See below for the interactive chart of the full list of Capital Region school districts by ranking.

Saratoga features some the Capital Region’s best school districts. According to the Albany Business Review’s last 3 years of school rankings, here are the top four school districts in Saratoga County. The multi-county regional ranking for each school district is included in parentheses.

Other than the quality of the school district, most parents are interested in the size and diversity of each district.

Below are the four top school districts in Saratoga County, according to the Albany Business Review’s school rankings. For each school district there is a direct link to the school district’s website, as well as district-wide statistics. The statistics not only provide demographic and diversity data for the top Saratoga schools, but also size and student teacher ratio. For some parents the quality of the school is as important as the size. Smaller schools generally will have less diversity, but they also will ensure your child receives more attention from teachers and administrators.
