MHS earns national ranking from US News & World Report
For the third year in a row, Mundelein High School has earned high National and metro-area rankings in 2021 Best High Schools, which US News recently released. By earning a national ranking Mundelein High School achieved status as a US News Best High School and gained eligibility to display a US News-trademarked 2021 Best High Schools award badge. Only “Best” high schools may use an official US News Best High Schools badge. Many schools display these badges to enhance school spirit and to maintain attendance levels that are often crucial to obtaining adequate state funding.
In addition to the badge, US News publishes detailed school-specific information on enrollment, graduation rates, student body demographics, location, school type and results of state assessments as well as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate test scores. The Best High Schools rankings, available online only, are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm. US News doesn’t collect data directly from high schools – all data comes directly from official third-party sources. US News receives AP and IB data directly from the College Board and International Baccalaureate, respectively, for use in the rankings. The state assessment data and graduation rates are from each state and other data comes from the US Department of Education Common Core of Data.
“Once again, Mundelein High School has shown the community and the state that it is a stand-out high school in Illinois and the country,” said Districts 75 and 120 Superintendent Kevin Myers. “We are proud of our students, staff, families and community for all the support they have provided over the years and we continue to be committed to providing a top-notch education for all our students now and in the future,” Myers concluded.
