Dallas ISD schools recognized as among the best by The Washington Post
Two Dallas ISD schools have been listed by The Washington Post as among the five most challenging schools in America, and six more district schools earned recognition in the newspaper's 2014 review. The School for the Talented and Gifted and the School of Science and Engineering, both located at the Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center, are ranked No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. Both schools, perennially listed among the best in the nation, are ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in Texas. In addition, the following Dallas ISD schools also staked claims to The Post's list of most challenging schools: Irma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School - 20 (No. 6 in Texas) Judge Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet - 70 (No. 22 in Texas) School for the Health Professions - 197 (No. 40 in Texas) W.T. White High School -406 (No. 54 in Texas) Hillcrest High School -514 (No. 65 in Texas) Woodrow Wilson High School - 1,143 (No. 115 in Texas)
"We are proud of each of these schools for continuing to be a model of excellence, in Dallas ISD and across the nation," said Superintendent of Schools Mike Miles. "Each student, parent, teacher and other school staff members should be commended for their commitment and dedication." More than 1,900 schools nationwide are listed in the rankings. To determine the rankings, the newspaper takes the total number of advanced placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year and divides that figure by the number of seniors who graduated the previous year.
