How strong are the public middle schools in Glendale?

With a fresh school year kicking off, we analyzed newly released data from Niche.com — which include comprehensive report cards, rankings and reviews — to identify those schools that made the biggest strides last year and those that lead their peers.

Eleanor J. Toll Middle School's overall rating improved the most among similar schools in Glendale, rising from a B+ to an A-, according to data from Niche.

For the 2019-2020 school year, the school, located at 700 Glenwood Road, enrolls 1,243 students. Niche graded the school a B+ for academics (on an A-D scale).

The overall ranking comes from Niche's proprietary algorithms. A school's ranking might change due to many factors, including the relative rankings of similar schools and whether a school gained or lost peers due to openings or closings. Other numbers come from current public data from the U.S. government.
