Top 20 Elementary Schools in Chicago Suburbs, ranked by 3rd Grade Test Performance.

Below is the list of the top 20 Elementary Schools in the Chicago Suburbs based on the standardized test scores for 3rd graders at the school.  Test scores are only one factor in evaluating the quality of education at the school, and some argue not a very indicative factor, but nonetheless, it is an easy way to sort schools.  At you can sort schools by any grade you wish (but testing starts in the 3rd grade, so there is no data for K-2nd grade), and you can include only Chicago Schools, or only Suburban Schools, or both Chicago and Suburban Schools.  This list is only top elementary schools in Chicago Suburbs, ranked by 3rd grade test scores, and you can see for yourself at this link.

Our mission is to bring equitable school rankings to all families in the US, so that a home purchase decision can be made with a more balanced view of school quality. Today school rankings are biased towards privileged neighborhoods, and they unfairly discount schools with the socio-economic diversity. We aim to bring equity to school rankings.

You can take action right now to help put an end to discriminatory school rankings. Share this post!
