Chicago Suburbs Make List of "Best Suburbs for Education"

Evanston made the list at no. 7



    A Chicago suburb has been named one of the best suburbs for education in the country.

    Movoto Real Estate has released a list of the top 50 suburbs for education in America and Evanston snagged a top spot on the list.

    Researchers gathered data from more than 100 different suburbs in the U.S. using criteria like student-teacher ratio, money spent per year per student, high school graduation rate and or test score ratings.

    Evanston ranked no. 7 on the list and was cited for having some of the highest test scores and a high school graduation rate of 91 percent.

    The top-ranking suburb in the country was Newton, Massachusetts, followed by Plymouth, Minnesota; Ellicott City, Maryland; Minnetonka, Minnesota; and Dublin, Ohio.

    The only other Chicago-area suburb to make the list was Skokie, which ranked at no. 12.
