Northbrook Schools Rock!

Chicago Magazine has listed the top schools in Illinois, and surprise, Northbrook heads the list!

Chicago Magazine has listed the top schools in the Chicagoland area, and surprise, Northbrook heads the list! Guess which is the top high school in Cook County? Yes, you guessed it... Glenbrook North!

Considering I played three sports at GBN and never even won a game against New Trier... I was quite pleased to see we beat out my archenemy this year. This is what Chicago Magazine used to base its decision...

Of the many statistics that reflect academic quality, say education experts, the most revealing tend to be students’ test scores, spending per pupil, pupil-teacher ratio (for elementary schools), and graduation rate (for high schools).

And don't forget to congratulate our other great schools that made the list this year... Greenbriar, Wescott and Maple Junior High

Thanks to Jeff Olson for the heads up on this report!
