Best Schools In Houston

Finding the best schools in Houston can be a daunting task.

I come from a family of educators. Finding the right school for your children is difficult. The school, counselors, principal, and teachers make a huge difference in the quality of education and their life.

The City of Houston has approximately 280 public schools and over 85 private schools. When you also include the Best Houston Suburbs, those numbers jump to approximately 540 public schools and over 120 private ones.

While it’s easy to perform a search like “Best Elementary Schools in Houston,” and come up with names like River Oaks Elementary, West University Elementary, or Horn Elementary, it’s much more difficult to find the best school boundary maps that fit your home budget, especially with the size and quality standards your family needs.

Our Guide to Houston’s Best Schools (below) helps you learn about the following.

The top-ranked public schools in Houston:

Note: this study only covers public schools with defined boundary maps. Public magnet schools, public charter schools, private charter schools, and private schools are covered in our other Top Houston School Guide.

Two notable trends from our research were that Houston homes were zoned to top-ranked schools:

We based this research on ratings from multiple sources including GreatSchools, HAR, STAAR Data, and Distinction Designations (see more on our methodology at the bottom of this article).

If you’d like to see homes zoned to specific top-ranked Houston schools, please contact Paige Martin, founder of Houston’s #1 Boutique Real Estate team, powered by Keller Williams.

"The Houston Properties Team was absolutely amazing. I had initially listed with a different realtor that was recommended by a neighbor with very poor results. It was even more difficult because I was no longer in Houston and the trust I had put in the other agent was definitely taken advantage of. However, when I found Kim with the Houston Properties Team, all that changed. I was informed throughout the process and when she promised something would be done, it was. Before the experience with her, I swore off ever even considering purchasing a home again. She restored my faith in the real estate world." – Jeanette (Google Review)
