How do the rank the best school districts in USA?

I was taking a look at some best school districts in USA the previous evening and then attempted to compare school districts in the country. The local elementary school has great school evaluation, which I believe depend on test scores, yet the middle school and secondary school are not very good.

I'm not in the education field so it's difficult for me to know how they rank these schools. Does it rely upon test scores or do the likewise consider different variables? Are the charter school reviews incorporated into the rating?

I hear individuals discuss how the tests are all BS at any rate so perhaps rankings in light of those tests aren't vital? Is there another approach to assess how great a school is? Also, what amount of a distinction does it make to send your child to a decent school versus an alright school? Does it truly make a difference?

However, what really matters in the school rankings are student accomplishment rates. Of course for a school to have such high evaluations, it must have the necessary resources for teaching.
