Crystal Lake High Schools Don't Make 2014 U.S. News List

U.S. News & World Report released its annual list of top high schools in the nation this week.

Crystal Lake Central High School, Crystal Lake South High School and Prairie Ridge High School did not make the annual U.S. News & World Report list of top 400 high schools in the country, released this week

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.

You can read more about the methodology here.

The top four schools are all Chicago selective enrollment high schools. The highest-ranked suburban school was Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire at No. 5, followed by Deerfield High School and Hinsdale Central High School. You can view the full list here.

Correction, Cary nor Crystal Lake Schools made the the 2014 top High School List. But neither did any the other schools in the area not included in this patch.
