(WFSB) - A website released its annual list of the best public school districts in Connecticut.

Niche.com unveiled its list for 2020 this week.

The top three included the districts in Westport, New Canaan and Glastonbury.

See the complete top 10 here.

Niche said it ranked the schools based on a "rigorous analysis" of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education.

Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, public school district ratings and more.

School leaders in Glastonbury said it's nice to hear others agree they are doing good work, focusing on a wide range of student skills.

"I think it starts with the superintendent and the vision that we have of educating the whole child and giving them for opportunities that will prepare them for their future," said Susan Karp, chairwoman of the Glastonbury school board.

"We are most interested in their own wellness and mental health and that things are going well in their lives and we prepare them for whatever they want to do," said Superintendent of Schools Alan Bookman.
