Best Public High Schools in Dallas Fort Worth Area

The objective of the analysis presented on this page is to identify which Dallas Fort Worth public high schools' students are best prepared for college.

Each of the 156 DFW metroplex high schools included in this analysis was evaluated on its success on meeting this objective, based on three factors: 1) students performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) tests administered by the Texas Education Commission (TEA), 2) participation in and successful completion of Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses and advanced/dual credit courses, and 3) percentage of graduating seniors taking the SAT and/or ACT college admission tests and their performance on those tests.

Many DFW high schools offer a four-year curriculum at a single campus. More and more school districts in the area, however, are choosing to operate separate campuses for ninth grade students and/or for ninth and tenth grade students. In this analysis, the performance factors for the schools that are a part of these multiple campus arrangements were combined and the schools were evaluated in the same manner as the four-year, single-campus high schools.

Of the total 156 DFW public high schools evaluated, 140 are open enrollment high schools for which the only requirement for admittance is student residency in the school's attendance area. The 20 DFW open enrollment high schools that ranked highest in the 2013 analysis are listed below. Additional performance and other information for the schools that are located in the park cities/north Dallas and northwest Dallas suburbs areas is available by clicking on the school's name.

Clicking on the ranking data link shown to the right of the names of the schools will cause a jump to where the performance factors for that specific school are displayed in the table below that presents performance data for all of the DFW public high schools included in this analysis. Before you click on those links, you will find it useful to first page down and become familiar with the table headings.

Several school districts in the DFW metroplex also operate magnet schools. Magnet schools provide career-oriented or specialized curriculum in addition to academic subjects, and admittance typically is based on students' previous academic performance and interests demonstrated in student interviews, auditions, essays, and other similar faculty assessments. As would expected, since admission to magnet high schools is highly selective, the average standardized test results of the magnet schools are much higher than than average results attained by the open enrollment schools that their students would otherwise attend. This, probably to a large extent, has enabled the two schools that ranked highest among the the sixteen magnet schools included in this analysis to frequently be recognized in national surveys as the best two high schools in the U.S.

Methodology

A major change in this 2013 best public high schools analysis methodology from that used in previous years is the removal of the TEA accountability rating as an evaluation factor. This was done because of the reduced number of accountability ratings from four (Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable and Academically Unacceptable) to two (Met Standard and Improvement Required), and more importantly, how much easier it now is to earn the top rating. In 2011, the last year the previous performance system was used, less than 24 percent of all public the schools in the DFW metroplex received the coveted Exemplary rating, while in 2013, nearly 94 percent of these same schools, and all of the public high schools serving the Northwest Dallas suburbs and the Park cities/north Dallas areas, were awarded the new Met Standard top rating.

Also removed as an evaluation factor was performance of graduates as college freshmen in Texas four-year universities. This was done due to more representative data becoming available about the evaluation factors now used.

The three factors on which this 2013 analysis of which DFW metroplex public high schools' students are best prepared for college are based are how students perform on the annual TEA STAAR tests, the level of participation and success of students taking AP/IB courses or advanced/dual credit courses, and the level of participation and success of students on college admission tests. Each high school included in the study was measured against six evaluation criteria that were selected to reflect these three factors.

Within each evaluation category, the top rated school was awarded the maximum points allocated to that category and bottom rated school received zero points. All other schools were awarded a proportional number of points based on how their individual scores compared to the score of the top rated school. Scores from all six evaluation categories were then added together to arrive at the school's overall score. Some high schools did not participate in all the evaluation categories. While these schools were credited with no points in the applicable categories, total possible points for each of these schools also were adjusted.

Performance on STAAR tests: 70 points

A maximum of thirty points was awarded based on the percentage of a school's students meeting the TEA's achievement standards on reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies subject assessments, and a maximum of forty points was awarded based on the percentage of students who met the advanced standards.

Participation and performance in AP/IB or advanced/dual credit courses: 50 points

A maximum of 20 points was awarded based on percentage of all students completing at least one advanced/dual enrollment course and students in grades 11-12 completing an AP/IB course. The school with the highest percentage of students passing at least one of the two College Board English AP examinations (English language and composition and English literature and composition) or the IB English language arts (ELA) examination was awarded 15 points, as was the school with the highest percentage of students passing at least one of the three College Board math AP examination (Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and Statistics) or the IB math examination.

Participation and performance on college entrance exams: 80 points

The school with the highest number of seniors taking SAT and/or ACT college entrance exams was awarded 20 points. Fifteen points were awarded the each of the schools that had the highest mean scores on the SAT math and ELA examinations and the ACT math and ELA examinations.
