Ann Arbor MI: America’s Most Educated City

There are dozens upon dozens of reasons to be in love with Ann Arbor, Michigan, and even more to choose it as your address. A big push is the unmatched education quality.

America’s Most Educated City

A study by WalletHub evaluates the 150 most populated U.S. metropolitan cities, reviews the education levels, and weighs them against the quality of education and attainment gap. Ann Arbor, Michigan ran away with the results. Ann Arbor scored a whopping total score of 93.99. It came in first place in both the Educational Attainment and Quality of Education & Attainment Gap categories.  The next highest total score dropped all the way to 80.03 by San Jose/Sunnyvale/Santa Clara, CA.

Ann Arbor also scored first place for these sub-categories:

  • The highest percentage of high school diploma holders
  • The highest percentage of associate’s degree or college-experience adults
  • The highest percentage of bachelor’s degree holders
  • The highest percentage of graduate or professional degree holders

Quality Employers and an Interest in

One of the reasons a city scored well in this study is the importance employers place on education. When a city attracts quality employers that can retain quality employees, that employer will place greater emphasis on their employee’s education. Those employees will stick around longer and, presumably, keep contributing to the community’s overall health.  Yes, that does sum up this fantastic city of Ann Arbor! An excellent place to go to school, be employed, enjoy vibrant cultures, raise a family, and more.
