AUSTIN (KXAN) - Thirteen area schools made the list of the 100 best in Texas, according to the latest U.S. News and World Report annual rankings of high schools.
Schools were measured on students' proficiency in reading and math, and then how ready they were for college. The student-to-teacher ratio was also factored in.
The Liberal Arts & Science Academy, Harmony Science Academy, Westwood High School, Westlake High and Cedar Park High School are listed in top 50 statewide.
Dripping Springs, Bowie, Lake Travis, McCallum, McNeil, Anderson and Leander ranked between 50 and 100.
