The Study on 2022

Dwellics analyzed data on over 50,000 U.S. cities to compile a list of the top 100 most educated cities in America. Among the ranking factors included datasets on both children and adults. For childhood education, data included math, reading, and language arts proficiency, number of spelling bee Olympics contest winners, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) competition winners, and the number of blue ribbon schools in each city.

For adults, data included the percentage of the population with a bachelor’s degree or higher or a STEM degree. We combined the datasets with equal weight to determine the rankings. The city ranked number 82 out of 100. The overall score of the city is 82.27. Way to go! You can read more on the county here.
