SAN ANTONIO -

Children at Risk, a non-profit organization, has released a survey ranking all of the schools in San Antonio.

The survey's results are based on 16 measures of performance to evaluate all of the schools.

"We want to find out what are the best schools and what are the schools that need a little bit more attention on the part of the public," Children at Risk President and CEO Dr. Bob Sanborn said.

Health Careers High School was named the top public high school in San Antonio.  Jefferson High School was named the most improved high school.

Sanborn said San Antonio has a small percentage of schools in the top tier in the state.

"Unfortunately, about 37 percent of the schools in the bottom tier of the state are from San Antonio," Sanborn said.  "So what that's telling us is that we have some schools that are doing a great job, but not enough schools that are doing a great job here in San Antonio."
