I don't know what "better" means except in the context of the type of students you teach, your individual teaching style, and your personal preferences, but a few years ago when I taught HS geometry I was very happy with GEOMETRY by Harold Jacobs published by W.H. Freeman and Company. In my opinion, there was a good mix of proof and numerical problems. Formal proof was introduced at a good pace for my students and the problems became more difficult in a careful and controled manner. Related materials in the text, like Escher prints, cartoons and puzzles were, I thought, a great bonus.
