San Antonio High Schools - Ranked by Newsweek - America's Best High Schools 2013

This year our ranking highlights the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation—those that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads. The list is based on six components: graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).

All of these rankings are substantially different, so I put little stock in any of them.

I can understand where you're coming from, because the rankings are different, depending on the methodology used by whatever organization puts these lists out. That, combined with the data and how it is collected and analyzed, weighs heavily on the final outcome, thus why I've included a link to these methodology details on each ranking list so that each could be understood as intended. Personally, I prefer the US News methodology because of all the data collected from every US high school, versus Newsweek's that only uses those high school data that they (1) sent a request form to only those high schools selected by them, and (2) the high schools actually returned the form w/their data - correctly - to be included in their determination.

However, since the TEA has not assigned any accountability ratings since the 2010-2011 school year - i.e., since the start of the STAARS testing system was implemented - we have no state rankings for both the 2011-2012 and the 2012-2013 school years - and never will receive any for the 2011-2012 school year because of this testing changeover fiasco - thus, these national reports are the best we've got for now.

Reportedly, TEA is to release their performance reports in November of this year for the
2012-2013 school year, and in November for each school year thereafter.
