Interesting article. Until you read the testing and ranking methodology which makes the ranking at least almost entirely irrelevant, at least this year. (PARCC is now gone - thankfully). Still good for Maine East. http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/park-ridge/news/ct-prh-school-rankings-tl-0504-20170428-story.html

Do you really believe South is exempt from those things?

Every time I hear maine south I think drugs. I don't think it has gotten any better from the 90's, and that scares me for my kids.

Wait. the PARCC test is gone? I know it said so in the article but is that correct? I've not heard that this has happened. Is this only in high schools, I know it is still given in elementary?

All I know if when I inquired about some test scores for my high schooler, the test he took last year was compared to a year result that was over 5 years old, but that didn't matter because it was weighed and factored based upon socio-economic factors and such. I haven't had such a good stroke job in years. Such BS all the testing. Most of these kids are so stupid and ignorant of how the real world is all the test in the world don't really matter. The day an 18 year old has to be taught how to use an atm. let me stop there.
