2010 Newsweek's List of Top High Schools

Personally, I am not crazy about this list because all it measures is the number of advanced placement tests taken in relation to how many students are graduating. It does not matter how the students perform on these tests. Some of the schools, like the top 2 are selective schools - the cream of the crop kids.

So, for what it is worth, here's the list of just the Dallas area high schools:
