Newsweek lists Glenbard South, Glenbard West among nation's top high schools

Newsweek named Glenbard South and Glenbard West high schools to its 2012 list of America’s Best High Schools.

Glenbard West is ranked 717 and Glenbard South is ranked 856 out of the top 1,000 high schools in the country.

Newsweek’s list is based on six components from the 2010-2011 school year: graduation rate, college matriculation rate, Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate/Advanced International Certificate of Education tests taken per student, average ACT scores, average AP/IB/AICE scores and Advanced Placement courses offered per student.

Superintendent Mike Meissen said, “Newsweek’s recognition validates the work of our staff, students and parents. Throughout Glenbard District 87, we set rigorous expectations for high academic standards and our students, with the support of staff, parents and the community, are achieving success.”

Assistant Superintendent for Educational Services Hector Garcia said, “This ranking is a testament to the hard work, commitment and passion of our students and staff members. We believe that this is just the start of even more accolades and national recognition as more and more of our students seek to challenge themselves academically every year.”
