Best High Schools in the Austin Area

One question we get asked a lot when someone is considering buying a new home is, “Where are the best high schools?” This is a great question! A quality school district can have a profound effect on property value. Even if you don’t have school-aged children it’s important to know where the best schools are. There is great demand for homes in these favorable districts and that will drive up your property value.

So how do you decide which school districts are best? There are several lists out there that rank schools based on different criteria so it can be a bit confusing. To complicate things even more, in January, the results of the Texas Education Agency’s new A-F accountability rating system were published, sparking criticism from school districts across the state.

Despite the controversy and the different rating systems, the following 10 schools consistently rank highest in Williamson and Travis County based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness.

  1. Westwood, Round Rock ISD
  2. Westlake, Eanes ISD
  3. Vandegrift, Leander ISD
  4. Lake Travis, Lake Travis ISD
  5. Cedar Park, Leander ISD
  6. Vista Ridge, Leander ISD
  7. Round Rock, Round Rock ISD
  8. Anderson, Austin ISD
  9. McCallum, Austin ISD
  10. McNeil, Round Rock ISD
