With the revamped methodology, most schools’ ranks changed significantly between 2018 and 2019 because of the broader competition in terms of the number of schools being newly ranked -- more than 14,500. Consequently, a school’s rise or fall in the 2019 rankings does not necessarily reflect a difference in its underlying data. Since the methodology changed so significantly this year, a school’s ranking in the 2019 Best High Schools ranking can’t be compared with its rankings in any previous U.S. News ranking.

Ask me about the Greater Austin K-12th Schools - An Unbiased review of Private and Public schools

Supporting the High School Student - I believe families have the right to select the high school path that best suits their child's needs and will maximize their future opportunities. All too often, families say to me, "I wish I had known such and such when my child started 9th grade". No student deserves to be blindsided as they reach their high school senior year only to find out what could have made a difference in transitioning to college. As an educational consultant, I am free to explore and help families identify the most advantageous high school options for their particular child.
