The Community High School District 218 in Blue Island is the most improved school district in Chicagoland, according to a new analysis from Trulia.

In a partnership with SchoolDigger.com, Trulia analyzed test scores from the past five years to find which local school districts vaulted the most in regional rankings (the study focused on districts with three or more schools and more than 1,000 students).

By those measurements, Community High School District 218 came out on top. From 2011 to 2015, the district rose 41 spots in Chicagoland district rankings, climbing from 102 (out of 114) to 61. Oak Park Education Service District 97 came in at a close second, rising 35 spots all the way to No. 11.
