ETHS Ranked 21st Best IL High School

The U.S. News and World Report list came out this week.

U.S. News and World Report has named Evanston Township High School the 21st best high school in the state in its 2014 ranking, which was released this week.

The top four schools are all Chicago selective enrollment high schools. Adlai E. Stevenson in Lincolnshire was No. 5 and Deerfield High School No. 6. You can view the full list here.

Deerfield and Highland Park, at No. 10, are the only North Shore schools to make it into the top 10. But local schools dominated the next 10 spots, with New Trier ranked No. 15, Glenbrook North No. 16, Vernon Hills No. 17, Buffalo Grove No. 18 and Glenbrook South No. 20.

Nationally, Evanston Township High School was ranked No. 524.

The methodology, which was unchanged since last year, looks at three main factors to decide a school’s ranking: whether students are performing better than statistically expected for the average student in the state; whether disadvantaged students are performing better in math and reading than the state average for their peers; and the school’s “college-readiness” performance, based on AP or International Baccalaureate test data.

In Illinois, the Prairie State Achievement Examination is used to gauge student performance to determine the ranking.

Earlier this month, ETHS was named the 17th most challenging high school in Illinois by the Washington Post, putting it ahead of all other North Shore schools.
