    A Pittsburgh, Pa.-based data analysis firm said the top elementary schools in the Houston area are all part of the Katy Independent School District.

    Niche, the educational data analysis company, compiled data from the Department of Education along with student and teacher surveys to determine the list of top schools.

    According to Niche, the best elementary campus in the Houston area is Fred & Patti Shafer Elementary School, 5150 Ranch Point Drive. One of the comments from a parent said “We love Shafer! Great teachers and staff. Caring environment.”

    Katy ISD schools also took second place along with the reamaining campuses on the Top 10 list. In fact, the first non Katy ISD school on the list is Creekside Forest Elementary School - number 17, according to the company. It’s the second year Katy has swept the Top 10 list, Katy ISD officials said.

    “It wasn’t just the first, the second, nor the third spot on the list,” Katy ISD officials said in a statement. “Katy Independent School district took all 10 of them plus six additional ones.”
