K12Niche.com recently listed the "Best Public Elementary Schools" in America.

In Kentucky, all three Fort Thomas public elementary schools ranked highly. In fact, of the first 11 schools listed, all 11 came from two cities, Fort Thomas included.

The list used data sourced from various government and public data sets, Niche’s own proprietary data, and 4,624,238 opinion-based survey responses across a variety of topics from 287,606 current students, recent alumni, and parents. To read their full methodology for rankings, click here.
