Lake Forest High School
46 on a Washington Post list of the state’s most challenging high schools.
Nationally it is ranked 1,298. Fewer than 10 percent of high schools
nationally made the list.
That's considerably lower than it's been on the list in past years. Last year it ranked 30 in Illinois and was higher than that the two previous years.
The ranking uses the number of college-level tests given at the school divided by the number of graduates.
College Prep School of America in Lombard ranked No. 1 in the state but Chicago Public Schools dominated the top of the list, taking four of the top six spots; Walter Payton College Prep, Lincoln Park High School, Whitney M. Young Magnet and Jones College Prep were in the 2, 4, 5 and 6 spots. Adlai E. Stevenson in Lincolnshire ranked No. 3.
