Hinsdale Central High School in Hinsdale Among Top Schools in the Country
An excellent town to raise children with excellent schools to teach them. Congrats to our neighbors at Hinsdale Central High School in Hinsdale for being one of the best high schools in the country.
The Best High schools ranking looked at data from more than 22,000 public high schools in all 50 states.
The report began by determining schools where students were performing better than statistically expected for students in their state. It then looked at whether disadvantaged students performed at or better than the state average for least-advantaged students and whether the schools had a graduation rate of 75 percent or greater. It also gaged students’ college preparedness by using Advanced Placement test data.
In addition to Illinois’ 14 gold medal schools, 67 also received silver medals and 114 earned bronze medals.
