The magazine surveyed more than 21,000 public high schools in 48 states and the District of Columbia.
The Dallas Independent School District's School for the Talented and Gifted at Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Center ranks No. 5 and the School of Science and Engineering Magnet comes in at No. 8.
The magazine said the report's goal is to provide a picture of how well public schools serve students and prepare them for college-level work.
