The Texas Education Agency has released the latest SAT scores for all public high schools in the state, and Sweetwater’s high school is one of only six in the Austin area to rank among the top 50 high schools in Texas with the highest average SAT scores.

Lake Travis High School ranks sixth among Austin area high schools on the list. When not considering charter, magnet and online schools, Lake Travis ranks fourth among traditional, comprehensive campuses.
