For the third consecutive year, Boerne Samuel V. Champion High School has been named among the top 500 public high schools in the country by Newsweek magazine.

"America's Top High Schools 2016" ranks Champion High School 495th on its list. The magazine reviewed data from more than 16,000 schools across the nation in developing a short list of 4,800. The top 500 schools were evaluated based on criteria that included students' college readiness, graduation rates and other factors. The study was based on the 2013-14 academic year, the most recent year data is available from the National Center for Educational Statistics database.

"We are so proud of our students, or faculty and our staff, all of whom share in this honor," said Boerne ISD superintendent David Stelmazewski. "We look at this as a validation of our entire district and our approach to educating students, because the majority of the high school students whose results were part of this study moved up through our elementary and middle schools. So this is great news to start the school year. We continue to set high standards and help our students achieve their goals."

Champion is among 26 Texas schools on the Newsweek list; others include Highland Park, Alamo Heights and Prosper. Full results of the study are available online at
