Martin is a good choice. The area's largest university is there and the presence seems to make the local schools a bit above average.

Probably more so than any other place in Northwest TN due to the amount of University faculty in such a small town. Another option could be Jackson although it has a fairly high crime rate overall, there are some nice areas and a magnet school program.

Overall though NWTN is one of the most economically disadvantaged places in the state. I believe Lake County is the poorest county in the state and the area has been hit hard with some recent job losses. You won't find a large white collar community outside of some parts of Jackson or Dyersburg.
