The report card is in and Pikus Real Estate and Property Management received straight A's. But more importantly, owner Shirley Pikus, who manages rental properties all across Stark County in a multitude of school districts – received passing grades as well.
The U.S. News & World Report recently released its annual list of the "Best High Schools" in the country. The rankings show where Stark County Schools ranked in the state of Ohio as well as nationally.
"Our mission with the Best High School rankings has always been to educate families about schools in their district," Anita Narayan, managing editor of Education at U.S. News. "By evaluating more schools than ever before, the new edition expands that focus so all communities can see which schools in their area are successfully serving their students – including historically underserved populations."
U.S. News evaluated schools on six factors – college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates.
By law, Pikus Real Estate and Property Management cannot sway a client about a school district. Each client can evaluate a district's performance. So, how do Stark County's school district's stack up?
