Lake Travis High School - News:

"For the third year in a row, LakeTravis High School is listed as one of Newsweek's Top 1,300 schools in the country. This year, the campus jumped more than 200 spots to be listed at number 503 - its highest ranking yet.

According to the magazine (The Top of the Class, newsweek.com, 2007), public schools are ranked by the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2006 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000; they are in the top 5 percent of public schools measured this way.

Lake Travis High School Principal Charlie Little credits his team for helping build the school's Advanced Placement (AP) program.

"The Pre AP and AP teachers and school counselors have worked hard over the past several years to grow the LTHS AP program," Little said. "It's exciting to be on Newsweek's list, and I'm proud of our students for pursuing the academically rigorous courses that the AP testing program offers. Clearly, these students are making the most of their high school experience and they will be better prepared for success in college."

In 2006, LTHS was ranked 752 on Newsweek's list. In 2005 the school was ranked number 577, while in 2003 it was listed at 659. For more information on LTHS AP programs, contact the school's counseling office at (512) 533-6114."
