It would be interesting to see the total number of seniors for each of the schools and the number of finalists they have.

Highland Park High School- 12

How many seniors are in Frisco ISD vs Plano ISD? Staggering difference in the number of semis for those two districts (that often seem like interchangeable choices for relos).

Yep, people have asked me why I spent extra $$$ to do a new build in Plano ISD instead of heading north to Frisco ISD. Well, there's your answer. To be fair, Plano had over 100 NMSFs last year. Maybe Frisco can catch up in another 10 years.

That's an amazing performance by the Lewisville ISD, especially since Frisco folks seem to view the Lewisville ISD end of town as inferior.

Really valuable data

More important are % of semifinalists (almost all semifinalists become finalists) in graduating class and % of kids who gain admits to world's top 5 colleges (however one defines it; I view it as % of college alums who become notably wealthy in world's most competitive industries, 10-20 yrs post-grad...so Stanford CompSci, Wharton Finance, Harv Econ/ApplMath, Prince EE, Berkeley CS)

Kudos to schools like StMarks that seem to do a good job of helping smart kids enter leading colleges; am always dubious about value of HS/colleges vs value of smart/focused parents in producing high-achieving kids; I believe more of education occurs at family dinner table (and on Net and from self-teaching) from age 4-15 than in any school on planet

I ran some numbers on %ages of NMSFs by school class size last year. I don't feel ambitious enough to do so again this year, other than to point out that the class size of the Plano schools doesn't come close to explaining away their outsize performance on this measure. For example, Frisco ISD has senior classes of around 400, compared to 1200 for Plano. To match Plano, they should have somewhere between 8 and 12 NMSFs per school, not the 1 or 2 they do have.

I also occasionally hear the excuse that "All of Plano's top kids are Asian", as if the other schools would have similar performance, if only they had Plano's demographics. Yes, there are a lot of high-achieving Asians in Plano, but that's not the whole story.

So here are Plano's kids, broken into Asian and non-Asian, using my best guess based on the names.

Plano East: 8 non-Asian, 15 Asian
Plano Senior: 9 non-Asian, 26 Asian
Plano West: 14 non-Asian, 18 Asian

The point being, even if you disregarded every single one of Plano's Asian kids, they would STILL be outperforming neighboring districts.
