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

The website, Niche.com just published their 2020 Best Texas Public High Schools list and three Round Rock 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 2020 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.

The School of Science & Engineering in Dallas is Texas’ best public high school for 2019.  Number 2 is also in Dallas:  School for the Talented & Gifted (by the way, these two schools were ranked #2 & #3 last year).   Number 3 is in Austin: Liberal Arts & Science Academy.  Westlake High School in Austin is number 4, and Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston is number 5.

As for Round Rock ISD, Westwood High School is at the Number 8 spot – in the Top 10 (was #8 in 2019)!  Newcomer to the list, Round Rock’s Meridian World School reached number 46.  And Round Rock High School moved up from number 76 to number 60.
