US News And World Report recently ranked all the public high schools in the country. Dallas had the most in the Texas top 10 with 4.

Houston had 2 in the top 10 and none of the other cities that made the top 10 public high schools placed with more than one school. Nationally, 10 Texas schools made the top 100.

El Paso didn't have a high school place in the top 10 or even the top 20 for Texas. You have to go a little farther down to get to El Chuco and we didn't make the top 100 at all.

As far as the best, public, high schools in the entire United States of America goes, Texas had 10 in the top 100.

El Paso's first appearance in the Texas top 100 was Valle Verde Early College High School. The school, part of the Ysleta Independent School District, got the #35 spot in Texas and ranked #241 nationally. It was #1 for both YISD and the city of El Paso.
