Lake Travis High School
#62 Best Public High Schools in Texas
- Lake Travis Independent School District, TX
- 385 reviews
Senior: Lake Travis is a great high school if you are looking for a very strong sports background. The school also is very prosperous in the academic portion. They offer wide ranges of classes for students from regular to Advanced placement. The teachers can be helpful, some care more than others about the well being pf their students. It is extremely safe with two cops patrolling the campus and two drug dogs circling the school searching for delinquent kids. The facilities are exceptional and they have a program for pretty much every kid you could think of. Only complaint is the biased background, such as towards the kids in the athletic program. I noticed if you play a competitive sport such as football you are automatically favored by some teacher. It is unfair bias, except its beneficial if you are a football player!

Senior: My experience with DSHS was life-changing. I learned more in four years than I ever thought possible. I had teachers who consistently pushed and inspired me. I had friends that were competitive and helpful at the same time. I always felt included, both in academics and extracurriculars. I had a huge selection of clubs and afterschool activities as well as volunteer opportunities. The school did everything in its power to ensure students were ready for college and other post-high school careers. I enjoyed walking in the front doors every day rather than dreading the school day. The buildings were top-notch, and safety was obviously a priority. If a student needed something to help with their schoolwork, chances are the school had everything they asked for plus some. I cannot recommend a better high school to attend, especially based on the stories from friends in other districts. If I had to choose a high school all over again, there isn't a doubt in my mind that I would choose DSHS.

Senior: The school is very small which helps when you need some extra help in learning. The teachers have time to help everyone and give you as much help as needed. The teachers were very good and smart. I learned a lot, but we did not have the resources that most schools have because we are a robin hood school and have to give our money away.

Lago Vista High School
#611 Best Public High Schools in Texas
- Lago Vista Independent School District, TX
- 125 reviews
Senior: The main point that I feel should be mentioned about Lago Vista High School is how down to earth, accepting, and kind the general student body is. New or current students would have to actively try to NOT make friends if that was their goal. From speaking with new students about their past schools, they all seem to say that they much prefer the students and environment at Lago to their past schools (mentioning cliques, dangerous environments, peer pressure, etc). Nearly every teacher treats their students much like their own children - with understanding, interest, a willingness to help outside of class, and leniency when appropriate. The advanced classes are well taught (self-learning is often encouraged, but help is still given as needed). The administrators listen to the requests of the students. My only complaint would be that this school lacks many course options compared to other schools, although that is changing for the better.

Marble Falls High School

- 95 reviews
Senior: Marble Falls High School is a great place for students to be loved and inspired. The teachers overall are openminded and help each student learn at their own pace, while still maintaining a classroom environment. The school is home to many clubs and groups that strengthen each individual. I would love to see the high expectations lower just slightly. Each student is different and some are unable to reach these expectations. These students are frowned upon by many of the staff.
