North Texas' Top 16 Public High Schools


The top 16 public high schools in North Texas were graded on student achievement, school progress and performance among student groups. This includes STAAR test scores, comparison to schools of similar size and makeup, college preparedness indicators, graduation rates and other assessments like AP and ACT results.

Nearly all of the high schools that got top marks provide specialized career-based courses or college curriculums. Six schools are outside of the Dallas Independent School District, and three schools were just one point away from a perfect score.
