A new study finds the Orono and Bangor school districts among the 10 best in the state.

Regional School Unit No. 26 (MSAD 26), which includes the Orono schools, ranked sixth and Bangor ranked seventh (up from 11th in 2016) in the survey released last week by Niche, a company which uses government data and opinion-based surveys from students, alumni and parents to determine its rankings.

Hampden (RSU 22) ranked 12th. Cape Elizabeth was the top-ranked district. Here are the complete rankings for 2018.

The survey measured each school district in eight categories, with academics accounting for 50 percent of the grade. Other categories included health and safety, teachers, facilities, and student culture and diversity.

In a separate ranking, Orono had the 10th best public high school in the state. Bangor High School was ranked as the 12th best public high school in the state. Hampden Academy was ranked at 28th.

Maine School of Science & Mathematics in Limestone was the top-ranked public high school in the state for 2018.

The company also released a list of the best private high schools in Maine. On that list, John Bapst Memorial High School ranked eighth (up from 11th in 2017.)
