It may come as no surprise that a New England city ranked atop our list, since the area is just littered with top-notch schools and known for its academia. But out of all of the suburbs in the Northwest, it was Newton that took the role of valedictorian. That’s largely because this wealthy Boston suburb has the money to fund some really excellent schools. In fact, out of all of the places we looked at Newton spent the third most on each student: $17,343. It also had some of the highest test scores in the country, and, as the bonus point at the end of the test, had a low student-teacher ratio of just 11 to 1. No wonder this city is consistently ranked as a top place to raise a family.
