Thanks all for your support, comments and stopping by. Having three High Schools make the National Best list is impressive. If we eliminate the new school being tompkins as it cannot be rated, then Katy has 3 High Schools out a total of six or 50 %. i thionk that is very high! My picture still does not show! One week plus now!
