For families planning to move across the country, one top concern is how the public schools system stacks up in comparison to others. When considering what city has the best schools, there are several that stand out.
Although the cold winters may turn some people off, Rochester, Minnesota, has one of the best public schools in the region. Sometimes called Med City because of the renowned Mayo Clinic, Rochester devotes thousands of acres for public parks and trails.
With both private and public schools consistently ranked near the top compared to the entire country, the city of West Hartford, Connecticut, is a great place for families. The proximity to both Boston and New York is also another attraction.
A southern city with plenty of high-tech jobs, Raleigh, North Carolina, also excels at all educational levels. The Wake County school district is the best in the state, plus the city offers a mild climate to enjoy plenty of public parks.
A quiet hideaway near the Beltway, the Baltimore suburb of Ellicott City offers the finest school system in Maryland. Howard County has over sixty public parks, and all the cultural attractions in the nation’s capital are only about an hour away.
