(KGTV) - The city in California considered the “most educated” in the state is a Bay Area town located near the heart of Silicon Valley.

Business Insider, using 2013-2017 data compiled by the Census Bureau-run American Community Survey (ACS), reported 93.6 percent of the city of Ladera holds a bachelor’s degree or higher. The town is located just south of Palo Alto.

A map created by Business Insider shows cities with a population of at least 1,000 in each state with the highest percentage of adults 25 years of age and older with at least a bachelor’s degree.

Some notable cities on the Business Insider map include Key Biscayne, Florida; Chevy Chase, Maryland; and Scarsdale, New York.

Business Insider noted that cities or towns with college and university campuses were excluded from the map, “instead focusing on incorporated towns and cities and unincorporated census-designated areas.”
