Where are the Cheapest Apartments Near the Best Schools in Birmingham?

Birmingham has one of the most distinct geographic disparities in School ratings seen in the cities analyzed for this project. To the southeast of town is a triangle of higher-rated schools. Within the triangle, no schools in our analysis had less than a GreatSchools rating of 8 out of 10. Outside the triangle, the highest rated school was a 3 out of 10.

The triangle is our pick for best area of Birmingham for parents looking to rent. We define the Triangle as running from Homewood in the north, to Chelsea in the southeast, to the Bessemer Airport on the southwest.

To help identify where to live within the Triangle, we will use average property rent and school ratings to identify our individual property picks to provide the best value for each grade level.
