NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, named Mukilteo the #9 best city in Washington to raise a family!
To compile this top ten list, they considered the following factors:
1. Public school rating
2. Median home value
3. Monthly homeowner costs
4. Median household income
5. Population growth
The article says: At “Mukilteo by the Sea” the houses stud the hillsides facing Whidbey Island and Puget Sound. This community’s schools are consistently at the top of the pack, both in Washington and nationally. Kamiak High School remains famous for being the most expensive high school in the country. The school district serves a large number of students but that figure hasn’t hindered quality in the slightest. Schools at every level consistently win awards, namely the Washington Achievement Award. To top it all off, Mukilteo is home to one of three Ivars, a beloved Northwest seafood restaurant chain.
