According to some fancy statistics, I live in a pretty smart ‘hood, y’all. I’m sooo the 1%.
Mountain Brook is the smartest mid-sized city in Alabama by a wide margin, according to a new report from on Numbers.
The report, which looked at educational attainment data for communities across the U.S., said Mountain Brook ranks No. 14 nationally with a brainpower index score of 34.
That’s nearly 10 points better than Vestavia Hills, which ranked second in Alabama, but only 130th nationally with a score of 23.9. Homewood ranked third in Alabama and No. 172 nationally with a score of 21.9.
