Plainfield central is unranked. Scores are about the same as Joliet West.

So the questions are: "What does #1 do that's better than HPHS? How can HPHS improve? What'sRead More holding us back?" Compare and contrast.

The 'quality adjustment' to the AP results appear to be the only basis as to why DHS wasn't rankedRead More above Stevenson - as the # 1 truly 'public' [taking all comers - not getting to pick and choose its student body - like the academies and/or magnets] in the State of Illinois. OK, so, DHS will have to 'try harder.' As for Highland-Park, what's the story over there; and the same goes for New Trier? My, how the once mighty have fallen. Go Big Red!

I'd like to point out that Huntley High School, located in McHenry County, is also on the list.Read More Furthermore, they beat Cary Grove (which actually ranks 61st) with a ranking of 56.

Huntley is ranked #56, higher than Cary Grove per the full list.

The original list did not include Huntley High School. I wrote an email to the Washington Post'sRead More author, Jay Mathews, who was extremely kind and quick to reply. As you can now see, he has included our high school on the list. And whereas no one ever celebrated "We're Number 56!", it shows that Huntley and District 158 are making strides and will continue to do so. This is also a testament to our wonderful students, teachers, and community.
