Local High Schools in U.S. Rankings

Bah on U.S. News. Its just-released annual ranking lists DISD’s Talented and Talented Magnet as #14 and its Science/Engineering Magnet as #18 in the nation (and dear old Highland Park only comes in at #33–what’s that?). I’ll stick with Newsweek, where the TAG magnet ranked as #1 and the Science magnet ranked as #2 (with HP coming in at #16).

    If diversity were considered where would HP stand?

  2. SB says:

    And by diversity, I’m sure you mean “all brown.” Why are school only considered diverse once their entire student population is minorities? Seems to have worked real well for DISD.

    One can’t force diversity. If the surrounding neighboorhood is “all brown” or “all white” that’s what you’re going to get at schools. The exception being Magnets which get to select the school’s population to a certain extent.

    As for DISD, I’ll take two high schools ranked in the top 15 (or two 2 depending..) nationally. Thanks for asking.

    Ah but diversity was forced – Highland Park Judge William Taylor saw to that and he also saw that Highland Park was excluded.
