ETHS listed among nation's top high schools
A new report in Newsweek magazine says Evanston Township High School is among the top 3 percent of the nation's public high schools.
The study attempts to rate the 1,500 best schools in the nation, based on the number of advanced placement tests taken at the school divided by the number of graduating seniors.
The 1,500 represent the top 6 percent of high schools in the country, based on that measure. Within the group, ETHS was 695th on the list.
It also ranked 15th among 47 high schools that made the list in Illinois.
The score was slightly higher than what ETHS achieved on the ranking the past two years, but lower than its score in three years before that.
ETHS this year came in slightly higher than New Trier and Lake Forest high schools, but below the rankings achieved by Highland Park and Oak Park/River Forest high schools.
Five selective Chicago city high schools also scored higher than ETHS in the rankings.
