District 230 schools rank among the best of Illinois high schools

All three Consolidated High School District 230 high schools were named to U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools in America list. The methodology includes six factors based on a school’s performance on state assessments and how well it prepares students for college, along with graduation rate, college readiness, and underserved student performance.

 

Superintendent Dr. Bob Nolting said, “Our collective efforts at Carl Sandburg, Amos Alonzo Stagg, and Victor J. Andrew high schools have been noticed, but rankings and awards don’t tell our whole story. Who we are as a student body and a district is what makes us unique.”

 

Nolting added, “District 230 strives to foster innovation, empathy, and leadership. We are proud of our schools’ ability to educate, prepare, and support learners and leaders. Learning isn’t limited to the classroom; engaging co-curriculars help students communicate and collaborate. Our empowered graduates leave our schools as critical thinkers able to embrace diversity and ready for success wherever their paths may lead. None of this would be possible without the support of our staff, families, and communities.”
