LASA Ranked No. 14 Among 25 Best Public High Schools in the U.S.
In a recent survey of public high schools, the Liberal Arts and Science Academy, or LASA, was ranked No. 14 among the top 25 high schools in the nation.
School data site Niche ranked high schools based on 27 million reviews from more than 300,000 students and parents. Respondents rated schools for academics, teachers, student culture and diversity as well as resources and facilities.
"We are proud of the hard work of the students and teachers at Liberal Arts Science Academy, which has once again been recognized on a national level," Austin ISD Interim Superintendent Paul Cruz said. "We congratulate them for this prestigious recognition."
Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked LASA No. 7 in the state and No. 37 in the nation. Newsweek's America's Top High School rankings for 2014 ranked LASA eighth in the nation and the highest ranked school in Texas.
"I couldn't be more proud. This really attests to all of the hard work of our student and staff," LASA Principal Stacia Crescenzi said.
