Carroll Senior High Named One of America’s Smartest Public High Schools

Apr 07, 2016 08:23AM ● Published by Audrey Sellers

Dragons have a new accolade to their name: Carroll Senior High School (CSHS) landed on a prestigious list of the country’s smartest public high schools, coming in at No. 49 out of more than 23,000 public high schools across the United States. Research company Niche ranked schools’ academics by key factors including SAT/ACT test scores and graduation rates.

Scoring an overall A+ rating by Niche, CSHS is one of only three Metroplex schools to make the top-50 list. Dallas’ Highland Park High School ranked No. 22, and the School for the Talented & Gifted in Dallas came in at No. 8 on the list. Three other Texas schools (all Austin-based) also made the list: Westwood High School at No. 47, Westlake High School at No. 36 and the Liberal Arts & Science Academy at No. 3.

One Niche user reports that: “The education offered at Carroll Senior High is unparalleled. The athletics program, particularly football, excels. The education program is even better, with Carroll offering an incredible amount of Advanced Placement (AP) courses and a wide range of standard courses.”

Carroll ISD expects excellence and it shows, from students’ SAT scores to their outstanding performance inside and outside the classroom. Congratulations CSHS for this exciting recognition.
