El Paso public schools are well represented on the list of top schools in West Texas by Texas School Guide powered by Children at Risk.  This particular online publication takes things such as state exam results, growth indicators, and college readiness measure into account when compiling their list.

The West Texas rankings which also includes public schools in cities such as Lubbock and Midland is full of campuses familiar to El Pasoans.  Ysleta ISD’s Young Women’s Leadership Academy and El Paso ISD’s Jefferson Silva Health Magnet school in particular were named the top middle and high schools, respectively.
