You wouldn’t believe how many families choose public schools over private schools

The reasons we choose the schools our children attend is difficult to quantify, but the results of our choices are evident from data we’ve collected from both public and private schools in Preston Hollow. Data about Hillcrest and W.T. White high schools is based on the Texas Education Agency’s 2017-2018 Texas Academic Performance Report. Visit prestonhollow.advocatemag.com for additional data.

 

Students attending private schools: 6,600

Students attending public schools: 3,210
