Due to limited finances, parents often can't afford to enroll their kids at expensive schools. However, thanks to a recent study that focuses on high-achieving educational systems, families can find the best cities to consider moving to based on median home prices.
With the help of Forbes magazine, GreatSchools
, a nonprofit advocacy group for childhood education, recently released its second annual "Top Cities to Live and Learn" report, which outlines the best school systems based upon price ranges.
"This list is a virtual treasure trove for both families and real estate professionals who want information on schools and single-family homes at their finger tips," said Bill Jackson, CEO and president of GreatSchools.
For people whose price range for a home is below $200,000, the study found Pella, Iowa, and St. Johns, Florida, were the two cities that gave families the best educational bang for their buck.
Among all the price ranges, the New England area had the highest representation. Finding a low price for a home in the Northeast can prove difficult, however, as a recent study from Trulia found that Greater Boston had some of the country's stingiest sellers.
