Moving to a new city in Arizona is a stressful process. Combine that with having to find a new school for your kids and stress levels can reach epic proportions! As they say “education is the cornerstone of our society” so you want to be sure that you find the right school for your children. Using science and data, AreaVibes has compiled a list of cities with the best education system in Arizona with a minimum of 5,000 people.

Your children’s academic success can depend on your choice of education system. Finding the right city with the best education system in Arizona is no easy task. The quality of education varies from state to state, city to city and even district to district. In creating this list, we wanted to take into account more than just test scores. Although we do believe that standardized test scores are important we also wanted to factor in classroom sizes and graduation rates.

To further narrow down your list of the cities with the best education system in Arizona, you can use the filters above. This will allow you to filter based on cities or neighborhoods, city size as well as home and rent prices to ensure that the cities fall within your housing budget.
