At the Liberal Arts & Science Academy in Rollingwood, for instance, the no. 2 best public high school in Texas, Niche found that students were 99% proficient in both reading and math, with an average SAT score of 1410.

According to RedFin the median listing price for homes in Rollingwood is $2.5 million, however, so a move to the Austin-area community won’t be cheap.

For those hoping to spend a bit less, the real estate brokerage found that Coppell had a median sale price in February of $540,000.

Another more affordable option, the Woodlands, which came in 11th on the list, has a median listing price of $550,000.
