Best Large Cities for Top-Rated Schools

BEST LARGE CITIES FOR TOP-RATED SCHOOLS

Austin ranks 3rd highest by share of top-rated schools
Of all the elementary and middle schools located in the nation’s 30 largest cities by population, 16% are top-rated. That is, out the roughly 6,800 schools, around 1,100 have a GreatSchools rating of 8 or higher. San Diego tops the list with the highest share of top-ranked schools, 38% of the city schools, followed by San Francisco, with 30% of its schools rated 8 and above, and Austin with a 28% share. Seattle is fourth from the top, and New York City is fifth. DC, San Jose, Portland, Oklahoma City, and Las Vegas wrap up the top 10 large cities with the highest share of top schools.

Texas’ top-rated school zip codes are more high-budget but offer the highest living standards

For the zip codes with top-ranked schools where the average rent is higher than in the rest of the city, the biggest differences are noticed in Dallas, where living in a zip code with schools ranked 8 or above costs in some cases twice as much as living in an area without such a school. In some Austin zip codes with top schools it may cost about $1,000 more, and in Houston, $800 more. However, the higher prices are explained by the fact that many of the units in zip codes with good schools were built in the last 5 years, and are categorized as being high quality. While this means higher rent, it also means more amenities, comfort, and higher-standard living conditions.
