Dublin is No. 5 best place in nation for education

Dublin is earning honors as a good place for education.

The city was recently named a top suburb for education by the Movoto Real Estate Blog.

Dublin was named the fifth best suburb for education and was the only Ohio city to earn a spot in the top 10.

According to the blog, students in Dublin earn some of the highest test scores in the nation and have high graduation rates.

For the list, the blog looked at student-teacher ratio, money spent per year on each student, high school graduation rate and rating on GreatSchools.org, which is based on test scores.

Dublin's three high schools also made the Daily Beast's list of the top high schools in the country.

Coffman, Jerome and Scioto all appear on the 2014 list of the best 735 high schools in the country.

The online news service used college-level courses and exams, the percentage of students on free or reduced lunch, SAT and ACT Scores, graduation rates and college acceptance rates to rate high schools.

"Regardless of what criteria are being used, we've known for sometime we have three of the best high schools in the country," Superintendent Todd Hoadley said in a release from the district.

"The success of our high schools is a credit to our parents, students, staff and to the support of our entire community."

Jerome was named 60 on the Daily Beast list, Coffman was 259 and Scioto 583.
