When families are faced with the prospect of moving to Texas, one of the major factors they take into consideration when moving is the school district they'll be moving to. Parents want to live in a district that provides their children with a good quality education and one that will give them a firm foundation to launch their college career or give them a leg up on a trade or go straight into the job market.

Out of all the public, charter, and magnet schools in America, Texas has some of the best schools in the nation. According to a new report from U.S. News and World Report, Texas has 10 schools ranked in the top 100 on the 'Best High School Rankings' list for 2024.

The report encompasses more than 17,600 schools from across the nation and the Texas school that appears highest on the list is Dallas ISD's School for the Talented and Gifted. This school ranked 6th in the top 100. Two other Dallas ISD schools appeared in the top 100 - Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School at 23 and Science and Engineering Magnet School in at 29.

This new ranking is a good resource for parents when it comes to deciding where they might be moving to and where their kids go to school. The report looked at the following six factors when creating the ranking:

  • college readiness
  • state assessment proficiency
  • state assessment based on performance
  • underserved student performance
  • college curriculum breadth
  • graduation rate

Here's a look at the Top 10 Schools in Texas:

1. The School for the Talented and Gifted (Dallas)
