Usually, I don’t puff with pride, and there’s little reason why I should do so here. (It’s technically got little to do with me.) But I will, anyway. Newsweek’s annual ranking of top 100 public high schools was just released, and #1–by a wide margin according to the “index” (yeah, I’m not completely sure what it is, either)–is, ahem, my alma mater. My brother also graduated from the school.
As a co-worker of mine just pointed out, what makes this especially cool is that 33% of its students participate in the federally subsidized lunch program, which means that the school is not providing great education, but doing so for an economically diverse group of kids.
Another Dallas magnet, the Science & Engineering Magnet, comes in at #8.
I’m all smiles, folks.
