These 8 Cities In Arizona Have The Best Schools

Arizona isn’t particularly well-known for having the best education system. We are frequently the butt of jokes and the leadership in the state’s Department of Education leaves a lot to be desired. However, I can attest that as someone who previously worked in and with public schools, schools make the best situation possible with the resources they are given. So, instead, let’s focus on the positives!

Here are several Arizona cities that have some of the best schools in the state. The data was compiled from School Digger (a database that profiles educational information for parents) and the Best High Schools Ranking from U.S. News in order to create this list. We selected cities with more than two schools and ordered them alphabetically. Check it out!

So, did your city make the list for one of the top locations for amazing schools? Let us know what you thought of the results!
