When Will My Review Be Published?

It can sometimes take up to 48 hours for a review to be published. Some reviews are filtered into a queue to be manually checked before they can be published on the site, which can cause a delay. Reviews that violate Niche’s Content Guidelines will not be published on the site.

Is My Review Anonymous?

We remove reviews that contain identifying information. The most fundamental aspect of our service is to be a platform for people to share their experiences at each school or neighborhood and read about the experiences of others. In order to maintain trust with and protect the anonymity of our users, all reviews on Niche are anonymous and we do not provide any personal information of users posting reviews to schools. You can review our Privacy Policy for more information.
