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.”

In fact, the first non Katy ISD school on the list is Creekside Forest Elementary School - number 17, according to the company.
