Dallas ISD is home to two of the best 20 high schools in the nation–and the three top ranked schools in Texas–according to a new ranking from US News and World Report.
The School for Talented and Gifted (TAG) ranked as the 13th best school in the nation and Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School ranked as the 15th best school in the nation. For Texas, TAG ranked as the top school, Rangel ranked as the second-best school, and Dallas ISD’s School of Science and Engineering ranked as the third best school.
The U.S. News rankings include data on nearly 24,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.
“We are incredibly proud of the hard work of our school leaders, teachers and students at these schools,” Deputy Superintendent Susana Cordova said. “This recognition acknowledges their dedication to excellence, and we are grateful for all that these schools do to create beacons of learning in our communities.”
