The group analyzed more than 1,400 public schools from eight counties in the area alone.
The regional rankings include Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties.
Across the state, more than 8,000 schools were ranked.
The schools were measured by STAAR test achievement in reading and math, growth over time in those subjects, an adjustment of achievement indicators to eliminate bias toward campuses with low percentages of economically disadvantaged students, and college readiness, which includes graduation rates, SAT/ACT participation rate and scores, and AP/IB participation rate and scores.
The schools are listed as follows:

According to @childrenatrisk, the best schools support their students’ needs, especially from low-income communities. By offering after-school programming, 3 meals a day and more #forchildren, these schools work to improve student and family well-being. #HISD #HISDEmpowers— Houston ISD (@HoustonISD) June 3, 2019
