Steele Accelerated High School, Northwest ISD’s career-focused campus, has received U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools bronze distinction for the second consecutive year, placing it in the top third of schools across the nation in the publication’s rankings.

Rankings in the publication’s annual list are determined based on a mix of state-required tests and college preparedness. According to the U.S. News & World Report’s scorecard, Steele achieved a 96 percent English proficiency and a 94 percent mathematics proficiency. The publication similarly found that the school outperformed the state average.

Steele is located in Roanoke and serves students focused on their future on an application-only basis, though any middle school student entering high school is eligible to apply during the application period, as are approved high school students. The non-traditional school offers a wide variety of opportunities for its students, such as an accelerated graduation plan and dual-credit course options.

It is also home to two of the district’s academies, the Collegiate Academy (which allows enrollment in a range of dual-credit courses in coordination with North Central Texas College) and Cosmetology Academy (which includes in-school salon for training).
