HOUSTON – Is your child’s school on a recent list of the best public high schools in the Houston area for 2020?

Through feedback, data collected from the U.S. Department of Education and rigorous review by the team at Niche, a ranking is calculated to present parents and students with detailed and accurate information that will communicate what a school is truly like, Niche said.

Niche calculates rankings based on the following factors: academics, culture and diversity, parent/student surveys, teachers, clubs and activities, health and safety, resources and facilities and sports.

Academics accounts for 60 percent of a school’s ranking while culture and diversity, parent/student survey and teachers each account for 10 percent. The remaining factors impact a school’s ranking by 2.5 percent each.
