Blue Valley School District Among Best School Districts in the U.S.

When deciding whether or not a community is a good place to raise a family, educational opportunities for children will always be a big factor for parents. Fortunately, Kansas City and its wealthiest suburb, Overland Park, have some of the best school districts in the U.S., including Blue Valley School District. 

The region’s continuous influx of families has a lot to do with the region’s impressive record when it comes to education. At Bluhawk, that means we can thank these desirable districts for fostering an incredible sense of community and increasing the area’s potential for further economic investment.

Five. That’s how many consecutive years Overland Park has topped WalletHub.com’s “Best & Worst Places to Raise a Family” list. It has actually been ranked #1 on that list (which compares 180 cities across 47 key metrics) a total of six times. And, this past year, Overland Park ranked #11 overall in the “Education & Child Care” metric.

Last year, U.S. News & World Report ranked 70 Kansas City-area public schools among the country’s best, 52 of which were newcomers to the rankings. That indicates a clear upward trend that bodes well for local businesses, as well as current and future area families.
