📚 Data has ranked the best public high schools in Texas

📚 Dallas area public high schools dominate the top 30 districts in Texas

There is a source for parents who are looking for the best schools, not just public but private and higher learning, Niche. This is a site that crunches data to give parents a fresh look at particular schools, school districts, colleges, graduate schools, and much more. The site uses eight weighted factors for its ratings. While a huge emphasis is on academics, they also add in factors like diversity and culture, health and safety, clubs and activities, resources, and results from parent, teacher, and student surveys.

Once all of that data was crunched and sorted, they came up with a list of the 30 best public high schools in Texas. After looking at the list, we noticed that nearly half of the schools on the list are in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex.
