Highland Park public schools rank third among 2019 Dallas suburbs with best public schools and its principal high school, Highland Park High School, ranks first among the 2019 best open enrollment high schools in the DFW metroplex and its prevailing tax rate is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area. Some of the ways Highland Park is different from and similar to other DFW cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Highland Park is located in central Dallas County, approximately 6 miles north of downtown Dallas and 37 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Highland Park's proximity to downtown Dallas, both Love Field and DFW International airports, and the north Dallas business center is likely to make Highland Park residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
