Since 2006, the school ranking system developed by Children at Risk has highlighted the successes and need for improvement of public schools.

Each year they rank all eligible public elementary, middle, and high schools in the state of Texas. The idea behind the school rankings is to be an accessible guide for parents, educators, and community members on the performance of local schools and to spark community dialogue on the quality of public education in Texas.
