Coming off the heels of new national rankings by U.S. News and World Report and The Washington Post, Westlake Academy is also ranked as a top area school by Children at Risk, a nonprofit organization that drives change for children through research, education and influencing public policy.

The rankings, announced during a news conference Monday at the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, revealed Westlake Academy as the No. 1 high school in Fort Worth, and No. 3 in North Texas. Other area high schools honored include Grapevine High School, ranked as No. 2 in the Fort Worth area, and Keller High School ranked as No. 3. For middle schools, Westlake Academy is ranked at No. 4 in the Fort Worth area.

Schools are measured by performance on STAAR reading and math tests, improvements on standardized test scores in Reading, English, and Math, and college readiness. Measurements are adjusted to eliminate bias toward campuses with low percentages of low-income students.

Last month, data was released by U.S. News and World Report showing Westlake Academy ranked as one the best high schools in the nation at No. 58, No. 9 in Texas and No. 17 in charter schools nationwide! And Westlake Academy continues to make The Washington Post Most Challenging High Schools list at No. 33 in the nation! The 2016 national rankings for Newsweek have not been released yet.

Westlake Academy also was recently recognized for high achievement in student success by a national campaign of business and education leaders, earning the prestigious Honor Roll. The Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Institute for Productivity in Education (IPE) selected Westlake Academy as one of 713 public schools in Texas to receive the title of 2015 Honor Roll school.
