America's Most Educated Small Towns

I guess I have a different idea of what a small town is. I don't consider a suburb a small town even if it's population qualifies it as such. One must look at the larger area. Several small towns bordering each other is really one large metropolis.

As an example, the Salt Lake valley in Utah has 16 cities and some areas of unincorporated county (townships)--I'd not consider any of those towns small. The area is well over 1 million people.

I agree. To me, a town, small or otherwise, is an independent community, standing on its own merit.

Bethesda, MD is a wealthy suburb of Washington, DC, which would naturally invite a higher concentration of educated people. So is McLean, VA. Some of the California towns mentioned are Silicon Valley strongholds. Mercer Island, Washington, is surrounded by the Seattle metro area. I haven't checked the atlas, but I'm sure a number of the other named "towns" are just as conveniently located to a larger metro area. So this list has to be taken with a huge grain of salt.
