Deerfield High School is among only 11 in Illinois to meet required Illinois and federal standards for yearly progress, according to a story in Wednesday’s Chicago Tribune. No other north suburban schools including New Trier and Highland Park made the grade.
This achievement was part of the state’s school report card issued Wednesday. According to the Tribune article, schools must meet passing requirements on state exams. Otherwise the institutions fail to meet adequate yearly progress set by federal standards.
The Interactive Illinois Report Card gives detail on the performance not only of Deerfield High School, but the Deerfield Public School District 109 schools as well as an overall picture of the District.
