FHS Makes List of Best High Schools
An article from The Eagle newspaper recently reported that three Brazos Valley schools have made U.S. News and World Report's list of best high schools. The magazine reviewed data on more than 19,400 U.S. public high schools to compile the list. A&M Consolidated High School was 114 on the state list (1,096 nationally), and Bryan Collegiate High School came it at 134 in the state (1,370 nationally). Franklin High School was ranked 185 in Texas and 1,966 nationally.
The rankings were based on student-teacher ratios, schools' performance on state assessment tests and how well they prepare students for college. The School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas was the top-ranked school in the country; the Dallas school district's School of Science and Engineering Magnet was eighth in the country. There were no other Texas schools in the top 10.
