Recently, Austin Monthly released their yearly Best Schools in Austin issue and it had some interesting findings. Some of the ratings aligned with what we see on sites like Great Schools and others were slightly different. The rankings from Austin Monthly Magazine’s lists were based on findings from Texas non-profit, Children at Risk. Every year, this children’s advocacy group publishes a “best schools” list. They rank public schools in all four of Texas’ major metros. Here, we’ll show you their findings for the top 25 public high schools in Austin.
