Newsweek Ranks Fremd High School Top 16 in Illinois


Fremd High School was featured in Newsweek’s “America’s Top High Schools 2014″ list. The school is ranked 113 in the country, and is No. 5 out of 16 schools ranked in Illinois.

This year, the rankings were conducted a bit differently and Newsweek published two different lists to address the socioeconomic disparity that commonly skews top rankings lists. The goal of the rankings is to identify which public high schools prepare students for college, as well as overcome socio-economic inequality.

Two lists were published by Newsweek, including “America’s Top High Schools 2014,” which ranks schools based solely on performance (the “absolute” list), and “Beating the Odds: America’s Top High Schools for Low-Income Students,” which ranks schools with poverty levels taken into account (the “relative” list).
