Once again, Health Careers is the No. 1 high school in the San Antonio area, according to Children at Risk, a Houston-based nonprofit organization that researches and ranks public schools.
Health Careers was also named the top high school for Math and Science and No. 6 high school in the state.
"We are pleased that Health Careers High School was again named the top high school in San Antonio, but we are also disappointed that some very good schools did not make the grade according to their criteria,” says Dr. Brian Woods, Superintendent. “All schools have great potential and that potential is increased when parents partner with the teachers to positively impact children."
Their methodology includes 14 criteria for judging high schools and elementary schools and 8 criteria for judging middle schools. The criteria range from graduation and attendance rates to growth and STAAR testing scores. To view the full San Antonio rankings, go to childrenatrisk.org/research/school-rankings/san-antonio/.
