Florida Atlantic University’s A.D. Henderson University School has been named the No. 2 Best Public Elementary School in Florida by Niche, the largest website for researching public and private K-12 schools. The rankings were based off of a variety of factors, including test scores, student-teacher ratio and reviews from students and parents.

In addition to the No. 2 ranking in Florida, A.D. Henderson is ranked No. 17 out of nearly 50,000 public elementary schools across the country. Henderson received an A+ in the administration, health and safety and food categories, and an A in academics, teachers, diversity and college prep.
