The Top High Schools in Texas: A Closer Look at the #1 School

As an education expert, I have seen many high schools across the country and have witnessed the impact they have on students' lives. However, one school stands out above the rest - the School for the Talented and Gifted (TAG) in Dallas, Texas. For the second year in a row, TAG has been named the #1 best high school in the United States by U. S.

News and World Report. What sets TAG apart from other high schools? It's their focus on advanced-level curriculum and educational freedom. Students at TAG are offered 30 advanced courses, and must complete 12 of them to graduate. This allows students to challenge themselves and excel academically. But that's not all - TAG also encourages students to conduct field research and partner with universities, giving them real-world experience and preparing them for higher education. U.

News and World Report's ranking of public high schools takes into account various factors such as graduation rates, state assessment performance, university curriculum breadth, and university preparedness. They also consider each school's racial and economic diversity. Out of nearly 18,000 high schools across the country, TAG is among the top 1%. And out of 1,481 high schools in Texas, TAG is the best. But what about other top high schools in Texas? The state has a total of 25 schools that made it to the top 1%, with representation from all over including South and West Texas.

However, most of these schools are located within major metropolitan areas. The Dallas area is particularly well-represented in the ranking, with 10 out of the top 25 schools located in the North Texas metropolitan area. This is where you'll find some of the best public high schools in Texas, including TAG.
