Yesterday I wrote about the best neighborhoods in Houston, and one factor that affects a neighborhood's ranking is the schools in the area.

So today, I thought we would look at the best public schools in the Houston area.

This is based on a report by Niche, and the 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."

The rankings are updated every year, and many eager people await the results so they can move to neighborhoods with the best-rated schools.

Let's look at the top ten public schools in the Houston area.

1. Carnegie Vanguard High School

This school has the honor of being the highest-ranked public school in Houston and also the fifth best in Texas. It placed 42nd out of all public high schools in the United States. It scored an A+ in Academics, Diversity, Health and Safety, and College Prep.

99% of its students are average or above at reading proficiency levels, and 95% of its students score average or above at math proficiency. In addition, 95% of students at Carnegie Vanguard High School graduated.
