West named to US News Best Schools list
Posted on 05/15/2018
Maine West High School has earned a spot on the 2018 U.S. News and World Report Best High Schools list, listed with a rank of 27th among Illinois' 670 public high schools. 

In ranking schools, U.S. News and World Report utilizes a four-step process consisting of:
  • Students exceeding expectations on the state test, controlling for the school’s percentage of low-income students.
  • Underserved students performing better than the state average.
  • Student graduation rates meeting a threshold
  • Students prepared for college-level coursework.

  • Because of US News’ emphasis on achievement among low-income students and racial minorities, District 207 is pleased by the inclusion of Maine East and Maine West, both of which have made a concerted effort to better serve these students, who constitute a large percentage of enrollment at both schools. This marks the second time in four years that the US News list has included Maine West.
