The majority of the best schools in Washington state are on the Eastside and all 10 of the best high schools are in the Puget Sound region.

That’s helping to drive home prices in those areas even higher as more and more people move to the Puget Sound region for the growing tech economy here. While some have expressed concerns that the influx of well-paid tech workers drives prices even higher for the people who were already here, the news has only been good for those who already own homes in these popular neighborhoods.
