Northbrook Schools Earn High Marks in Illinois Report Cards

Glenbrook North and three elementary schools were ranked within the top 50 area public schools by the 'Chicago Tribune' and 'Sun-Times,' based on Illinois standardized test results.

Glenbrook North High School is the 11th best performing public high school in the Chicago area, based on the number students who met or exceeded standards on the Prairie State Achievement Examination, Chicago Tribune reports.

According to the Tribune, 83 percent of students met the state's PSAE standards, a 3.4 percent decrease from the previous year. GBN also fell short of Federal education standards, based on the No Child Left Behind act.

The Chicago Sun-Times, which ranked schools based on average test scores, ranked GBN the 10th best school in the state

Three Northbrook elementary schools — Greenbriar, Westmoor and Wescott — were ranked in the top 50 elementary and middle schools by the Tribune based on the Illinois Standard Achievement Test. The schools were placed in 20th, 34th and 42nd places, respectively. 

All three elementary schools met Federal education standards, according to the Tribune.

On the other hand, the Sun-Times only ranked Wescott among the 50 best in state. It earned the 32nd spot. 

The Chicago Sun-Times also ranked Maple Middle School the 16h best middle school in Illinois.

Earlier this year, Chicago Magazine ranked Glenbrook North the best suburban Cook County high school. They also ranked Greenbriar School the fifth best in Cook County suburbs, immediately followed by Wescott School. Maple School is the magazine's ninth best.
