Methodology

Apartment Guide created this series of articles by charting the best public schools (only those with a score between 8 and 10 using GreatSchools 1-10 scale ratings) within selected American cities. Next, we located the areas with close proximity to top schools at every level of education (elementary, middle and high school) and then analyzed which neighborhoods are most desirable to apartment hunters wanting to be near those top schools.

Finally, Apartment Guide broke down the data to reveal which specific apartment communities in those neighborhoods offer access to the best schools for the lowest average monthly rent cost – using our own proprietary data on current rental rates.
