Seeking to get into the school rankings game, US News today announced its list of best high schools, which is based on different measures than the Newsweek "Challenge Index" that has been around for years now and is based almost exclusively on AP and IB participation. You can find the new US News list of the top 100 here -- including all the usual suspects (Payton, Lincoln Park, Jones, Northside, etc.) For the rest of the schools on the list -- including Brooks, Curie(!), Kenwood, Lakeview, Morgan Park, Noble Street -- you can look here. Or go to http://www.usnews.com/directories/high-schools and click on Illinois.
