GBN Makes ‘Most Challenging High School’ List

Glenbrook North ranked as the 26th most challenging in Illinois.

GBN Makes ‘Most Challenging High School’ List

Glenbrook North High School ranked 26 on a Washington Post list of the state’s most challenging high schools. Nationally it is ranked 917. Fewer than 10 percent of high schools nationally made the list.

That's a higher ranking than it's earned the past several years on the same list and is one spot above Glenbrook South.

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.

You can view the full Washington Post ranking here. And you can read more about its methodology here.
