Seven Tampa Bay schools rank among the top 400 K-12 private schools in the U.S. — or within the top 1% range of tens of thousands in the nation, according to Pittsburgh-based Niche, a platform connecting students and families with colleges and schools.

Niche released its 2021 Best Private K-12 Schools in America list where schools from Tampa, Sarasota and Bradenton were among those that received stellar scores in a group of more than 22,696 schools.

Ranking of the schools included SAT/ACT scores, the quality of colleges that students consider, student-teacher ratio, private school ratings and more.

The quality of schools in a region can be critical to a business’s ability to recruit good workers who have families to think about when relocating.
