A recent list by Niche.com listed Jericho School District as the number one district to teach in nationally. The list ranked 12,412 districts and looked at many factors, including overall experience, health and safety, salary, student-teacher ratio, administration policies and teacher absenteeism.

This high ranking indicates that the teachers work in safe, well-rounded schools and the district is invested in its teachers by providing a good environment for teaching and learning, according to niche.com, a website that researches and analyses data on public and private K-12 schools.

“With support from the Board of Education and the Jericho community, Jericho School District prides itself on hiring the best and brightest teachers,” said Superintendent Hank Grishman. "Jericho teachers have a special commitment to their profession and always go above and beyond for the students and the district.”
