Website ranks town No. 1 for young families

Collierville was recently ranked first among Tennessee cities for young families.
NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, has analyzed national and statewide data to determine the best places in Tennessee for young families.
Collierville ranked first on the list that evaluated five factors:
• Public school rating
• Average home value
• Ongoing cost of homeownership
• Average income
• Economic growth
“Quality schools, cheap cost of living and ample opportunity for employment all bring a young family to settle down in a town. NerdWallet wanted to identify the best in Tennessee,” said Mike Anderson of NerdWallet.
“Collierville has one eye on the past and another on the future,” he continued. “The town does its fair share to preserve its historic spaces. There is the town square and antebellum architecture at the heart of Collierville, spotted with one-of-a-kind boutiques, antique stores, specialty shops and an old-fashioned gas station.
“Collierville’s town gem is the Train Museum, where visitors can take a trip back in time and dine in a beautifully restored train car. Collierville does its best to work toward a bright future, too, and it is doing a great job. Collierville High School is extraordinarily successful: 98 percent of its students go on to a four- or two-year college, and the majority of students score well above the state average in statewide Gateway exams.”
Also on the list were Spring Hill at number two, Franklin at number four and Brentwood at the six spot.
