Data Company Ranks Top Maryland Public Schools With the Best Teachers

    Maryland parents are keenly interested in the quality of public schools. Niche.com, which rates everything in education, has created a ranking of what it says are the schools with the best teachers in the state.

    Most are in Montgomery County.

    According to Niche.com, the rankings are based on seven factors: academic grades, parent/student surveys on teachers, teacher absenteeism, teacher salary index, teachers in their first or second year, average teacher salary and the student-teacher ratio.
