2010 Austin School Rankings

For the second consecutive year, CHILDREN AT RISK researched and ranked public high schools in the Greater Austin area. Westwood High School tops the list as number one.

The organization’s High School Rankings Report is based on the evaluation of 47 public high schools in the seven counties of Greater Austin (Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson counties). Researchers based their methodology on 14 measures of performance to evaluate how well Austin public schools are preparing students for post-secondary success. Among them was the graduation rate, participation in advanced coursework, and performance on college entrance exams.

This year, the report includes the Most Improved High Schools. The organization analyzed schools to gauge improvements made over the past three years across the 14 measures used to rank high schools.
