by Peter Thomas Ricci

How do the housing markets compare among Chicagoland’s top-performing schools? And how do those scores look when the schools are separated by the home prices of their respective markets?

Courtesy of a detailed analysis from RealtyTrac, we have charted Chicagoland school rankings in four distinct categories: top city schools in accessible housing markets; top city schools in pricier markets; top suburban schools in accessible markets; and top suburban schools in pricier markets. For our rankings, we used a median price of $250,000 as the cut-off point.

We should also note two things: first, in regards to test scores, the state average is a score of “1.0”; and second, for more information on which CPS schools are selective enrollment, click here.
