A recent study by WalletHub concurs with that assessment, as Anthem was ranked sixth out of 65 Arizona cities for “Best Places  in Arizona to Raise a Family.”

The study looked at 21 metrics to determine its findings. Some key highlights for Anthem:

  • 1st in Affordability
  • 2nd in Highest Median Family Income
  • 3rd in Quality of School System
  • 3rd in Playgrounds per Capita

Of course, this isn’t the first award bestowed upon Anthem. Last year, AZ Foothills’ “Best of Our Valley” tabbed Anthem as the “Best Master Planned Community for Children.”
