Educational Excellence: Illinois School District Name] Claims Title of Best in the Nation
A school district in Illinois has been ranked as the best school district in the United States. The result is based on the annual ranking of public schools across the United States published by student research group Niche.
Niche uses a variety of data measurements, including "ratings from current students, alumni, and parents...and...quantitative data from sources like the U.S. Department of Education to evaluate teachers, resources and facilities, extracurricular activity opportunities, and more."
This information is then used to rank 11,820 school districts nationwide. Coming out the top of these school districts is Adlai E. Stevenson High School District No. 125 in Illinois. The district is located in Lincolnshire and has 4,392 students in grades 9-12, with a student-teacher ratio of 16 to 1. The district comprises just one school- Adlai E. Stevenson High School, which opened on Sept. 7, 1965.
The school is named for Adlai E. Stevenson II, a former Illinois governor, two-time presidential candidate, and United States ambassador to the United Nations.
Stevenson serves all or parts of 15 communities with its 42-square-mile district: Lincolnshire, Long Grove, and Prairie View, and portions of Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, Hawthorn Woods, Indian Creek, Kildeer, Lake Forest, Lake Zurich, Mettawa, Mundelein, Palatine, Riverwoods, Vernon Hills and Wheeling.
