Texas is a large state with diverse regions. But what are the best places in Texas for those looking to settle down and raise a family? Below, SmartAsset combs through the data to find the best places in Texas to raise a family. In order to find the best cities in Texas to raise a family, we looked at factors like the graduation rate, percent of population age 19 or younger, AP participation rate and percent of students scoring a 3 and above on AP tests. We also considered the family poverty rate, average deficit for those in poverty and the unemployment rate, plus the median monthly housing cost and median household income. Finally as a measure of safety, we considered the property crime and violent crime rates.
