Naperville Home to Top Schools

Our city recently topped another list, and with school right around the corner – it’s one to celebrate.

In a recent study done by Niche, Naperville is home to the second best public schools in the country. Arlington, Virginia nabbed the top spot.

The annual ranking was based on state test scores, SAT and ACT scores, graduation rates, teacher quality and student/ parent reviews.

And in Newsweek’s list of top public high schools in America, both Waubonsie and Neuqua Valley earned a spot – with Waubonsie coming in at 260 and Neuqua Valley 154th.

Naperville has a graduation rate of 93.8% – more than 10% above the national average of 82.2%.

Naperville was also recently named the Best City in Illinois, the Wealthiest in the Midwest and one of the Safest Cities to Raise a Child.
