How does your school rate?
Compilation of all Illinois School Report Cards
Illinois Interactive Report Card, compiled by Northern Illinois University, with support from the Illinois State Board of Education.
GreatSchools. The "yelp" of school ratings. Users can provide opinions on the school. Take with a "grain of salt" and do your homework.

I recommend calling any school district of interest directly if you have any questions regarding their school or services.
