Cupertino Ranks in the Top 10 Most Educated Places in America

library in college universityCupertino landed toward the top of NerdWallet’s 2015 most educated cities in America. As the headquarters of Apple, Seagate Technology, and other thriving electronics companies, the city is known for its intelligent and highly qualified residents who have engineering and technology degrees.

San Jose also ranked among the larger cities, beating out California’s largest city for a spot in the middle. Let’s see how these two areas compared with the nation.

Cupertino: #10 Educated City in America

High School / Associate’s: 96.8% 

Bachelor’s: 76.7%

Master’s: 31.0%

While it may rank in the top 10, Cupertino easily beats out the other high-ranking cities — and the nation— for the largest percentage of residents with a master’s degree.

The area has enjoyed the spotlight before. It will likely continue to inch on up the list as Silicon Valley continues to attract technology start-ups and skillful employees.

With such highly educated residents, Cupertino provides more unique opportunities for starting careers and living in an appealing residential environment, not to mention bolstering the local economy as the in-demand industries seek the best minds for the job.

San Jose: #44 Most Educated Large City

Bachelor’s: 37.6%

Master’s: 10.7%

San Jose easily surpassed Los Angeles in all three categories. As the so-called capital of Silicon Valley, it too will likely rank among the giants and perhaps become the most educated city in California.

High demands for engineering, computer science, electronics, and other thriving industries in San Jose will also bring an influx of the most qualified people with years of post-secondary education.
