Located in the heart of Silicon Valley and home to Apple and other high-tech companies, Cupertino attracts a diverse, educated crowd. How diverse? Only about 30% of residents are white (the biggest ethnicities are Asian and Asian Indian). How educated? More than 60% have a bachelor’s degree or higher. And the city’s primary and secondary schools rank among the highest performing in the state. The downside to living near all these brains? Job competition is stiff.
