Zachary named among 10 best towns for families in America
Family Circle magazine has included Zachary on its new list of the 10 best towns for families in the United States. The magazine notes Zachary's relatively high median income ($65,749), low average home price ($180,000), low student/teacher ratio (21:1) and high overall schools rating (it gives it a 9 of 10) in placing it on the list. "The [school] district has been rated the best in Louisiana for the last seven years and was the only one to receive an 'A' rating from the state in 2011," says Family Circle, which also quoted Zachary residents Jennifer and Nick Carr in its coverage. "The schools were wonderful when I attended, but they're simply amazing now," says Jennifer, 39, a hairstylist. The Carrs tell the magazine Zachary's family-friendly atmosphere sets it apart. "Whether we're blueberry picking, having crawfish boils or going to Friday night football games," says Jennifer, "I'm just so thankful we're here."
