Evanston Named One of the Best Suburbs for Education in America!

Evanston ranks among the country’s best suburbs for education, according to the real estate website Movoto.
The site put Evanston at No. 7 on its Top 10 list. It singles out city’s high test scores, high graduation rate and large spending per pupil.
Newton, MA tops the list, with Plymouth and Minnetonka, MN and Wauwatosa, WI representing the Midwest along with Evanston. Evanston is the only Illinois community to make the list.
The site compiled the list by assessing four criteria: student-teacher ration, money spent per year per student, high school graduation rate and rating, which is based on test scores.
