HISD schools get top ranks in U.S. News & World Report list

Carnegie Vanguard High School has been ranked as the 10th best high school in the country, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 Best High Schools rankings.

Three additional Houston Independent School District schools were ranked in the top 100 — DeBakey High School for Health Professions, which was ranked 29th, Eastwood Academy, which came in at the 50th spot, and Challenge Early College High School, which was ranked 78th.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings are designed to identify great high schools that serve all students — no matter their socioeconomic status. The list is determined by looking at results from state assessments results, as well as the degree to which students at each school are prepared for college-level work. Graduation rates were also included as a factor in the rankings for the first time.
