Three WNY Schools Rank in Top 10 of Buffalo Business First Ranking

October 10, 2013 Updated Oct 10, 2013 at 3:31 PM EDT

Suburban districts once again dominate Business First’s annual rankings of Upstate New York’s school systems:

• Pittsford, which is located southeast of Rochester, remains the top-rated district throughout the 48-county region in 2013. It has been No. 1 since the Upstate rankings debuted in 2011.

• Fayetteville-Manlius, which is east of Syracuse, is in second place, just as it was a year ago.

• Another Rochester suburb, Honeoye Falls-Lima, pushes up to third this year from sixth a year ago.

• Rounding out the top 10 are the following suburban districts, in order from fourth place to 10th: Brighton (outside Rochester), Skaneateles (Syracuse), Williamsville (Buffalo), Cazenovia (Syracuse), East Aurora (Buffalo), Bethlehem (Albany) and Clarence (Buffalo).

Complete details will be printed in Business First's 2013-2014 Guide to Upstate School Districts, a 480-page electronic publication that will be available on Friday. Copies can be ordered by calling 716-541-1631 or e-mailing Karen Schiffmacher at kschiffmacher@bizjournals.com.
