America's Best High Schools - The Daily Beast

Not sure how reliable/authoritative the ranking is. Surprised that Memorial/Bellaire/Clements High was not within the top 500 yet Stratford High was at #168. Good news for our zip code 77079.

I'm sure Stratford and other Housotn schools are great and I support them.
HOwever, I find it absurd there are 'overeall' national school rankings. You can rank them based on one set of marker maybe, but 'overall' is silly. That's like ranking best overall city.
I see that they give 25% weighing to % who graduate...well, that's easy to fix isn't it, just past everyone. While standardized test scores weigh less. hum.

Reallize that these magazines do these rankings of best 'fill in the blank' because it sells LOTS of magazines. I believe it used to be college rankings first, then they reallize how well it sells magazines and then they do other institutions. It used to amuse me that universities would change rankings as much as by 10 ranks from one year to the next....not much changes in a university in one year.
