I recently wrote about the nine best neighborhoods in Dallas, and today it's time to look at the nine highest-ranked public schools in Dallas. This is based on a report just released by Niche. This is how they determine the ranking of a school.

The 2022 Best Public High Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, and high school ratings

Many people use these rankings to assist them in where to live in a city to ensure their children can attend the best possible school. In addition, Niche updates their findings every year, and many eager people await the results so they can move to neighborhoods with the best-rated schools. So with that in mind, let's take a look at the top ten ranked public schools in Dallas.
