Brownsboro High School is proud to announce its recent ranking as one of the best high schools in the nation and ranked #1 in Henderson County, according to U.S. News & World Report. The school has secured a prominent position on the 2024 Best High Schools list, demonstrating its commitment to academic excellence and student success. Brownsboro High School ranked in the top 37% out of approximately 18,000 schools in the nation.

To determine top schools, U.S. News & World Report pulled information from statewide standardized testing results, graduation rates, College Board and International Baccalaureate exam data and the U.S. Department of Education's Common Core of Data.  Brownsboro High School’s excellent performance in these areas has earned it a spot in the top 30% in the state of Texas.

Brownsboro High School gives full credit to the teachers and students for giving the school this tremendous recognition.  The hard work and dedication put in the classroom each and every day, as well as the relationships built are what truly help make each student that much more successful.

BISD Families:

Earlier this year, the Texas legislature passed a new law in an effort to curb what the U.S. Surgeon General declared in 2018 to be an epidemic in the use of e-cigarettes by young people. Since their invention in 2003, e-cigarettes – also called ‘vapes’ – have been determined to be particularly harmful to youth’s health. Almost all vape liquid contains nicotine, which has been determined to have a negative effect on adolescent brain development. Vaping aerosols also contain chemicals linked to serious lung disease.

The new law will impact student discipline practices beginning with the 2023-24 school year. Per House Bill 114 and Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code, any student who possesses, uses, sells, gives or delivers an e-cigarette to another person be removed from class and placed in a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP).  This includes extracurricular events after school hours. 

If a student possesses, uses, sells, gives or delivers to another an e-cigarette, they will face a minimum of 15 days in DAEP, and increased time with each additional offense.  Parents are encouraged to discuss the dangers of vaping with their students.
