3 Round Rock High Schools Make the Top 100 Best Texas High Schools List

The website, Niche.com just published their 2019 Best Texas Public High Schools list and three Round Rock Independent School District High Schools have made the list. Pretty impressive right?

But what exactly does it mean to be on the “Best Texas Public High Schools” list and how do you qualify for it?

According to Niche.com:

The 2019 Best Public High Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, and high school ratings.

Ok.  I’ll buy that.  As a parent of 2 high school students in the Round Rock ISD, I was happy to see their school show up on the list.

Liberal Arts & Science Academy in Austin is Texas’ best public high school for 2019.  Number 2 & 3 are both in Dallas: The School of Science & Engineering and the School for the Talented & Gifted.   Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston’s number 4, and Westlake High School in Austin rounded out as number 5.
