Business First School Rankings: Rochester specialized ratings

June 6, 2014 Updated Jun 6, 2014 at 8:12 AM EDT

Business First has been releasing academic rankings of Rochester Area schools all week, pinpointing the region's best school districts and high, middle and elementary schools.

But there are other ways to analyze a district's performance, including seven specialized ratings devised by Business First.

These ratings have no impact on a district's academic score, but they do illuminate specific characteristics of a given district. Does it outperform expectations? Does it handle its finances efficiently? Does it have an experienced faculty? Specialized ratings help to answer these questions, among others.

Here are this year's top-rated districts in the eight-county Rochester Area:

Achievement index: Prattsburgh

Cost-effectiveness: Victor

Administrative efficiency: Fairport

Socioeconomic climate: Pittsford

Student access: Honeoye

Teacher experience: South Seneca

Teacher pay: Pittsford
