These schools have the best track records as far as academics and test scores go:

Clark, O'Connor, Brandeis (Northside ISD)
Reagan, Johnson, Churchill, MacArthur (North East ISD)
Alamo Heights HS (Alamo Heights ISD)

Brandeis has only been open for a year, how can it have a track record?

Completely forgot to put that disclaimer in there about both Brandeis and Johnson. Even though both schools are new, most of their students come from the schools I listed. Once they have been established for a few years, I have no doubt they will be held in the same regards as the other schools.

You forgot to mention Health Careers in the Northside list. That is a great school if you want to go into the medical field. I'm not sure how many years now it has been but everybody always passes the taks test.

On a side note, I find it funny how parents will move to x neighborhood just so their child can go to x school. The solution is private school where you can live anywhere and many times is the cheaper solution as well.
