How good are Naperville High Schools? Well, according to a review of public rankings done by the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper and overall statistics from the greatschools website, they’re pretty darn good.
In fact, Naperville has some of the best high schools in the state of Illinois.
The Sun-Times analysis ranks the top 50 high schools in the state by a formula based on average scores on state achievement tests. This is a bit different than other methods that may include only the percentage of student scores which meet state standards.

- #12 – Naperville Central (percentile rank: 76.49)
- #13 – Neuqua Valley (percentile rank: 76.42)

There’s no question that these state test scores are good.
