ILLINOIS — How's this for comprehensive: Now you can find out if your district has the best schools at any grade level, public and private, in Illinois.

Niche.com, which specializes in all different types of rankings, released a new 2019 list slightly different than its usual rankings. This time around, Niche ranked what it says are the top 100 schools in Illinois, including both private and public schools, and spanning elementary, middle and high schools. (See the full list below.)

In Illinois, Niche seems to prefer public schools, which make up the overwhelming majority of spots on the list, including the top four.

It is important to remember that every school on this top 100 list receives either an A+ or an A for an overall score from Niche.

Niche's methodology is based on an analysis of academic and student-life data from the US Department of Education along with test scores, and feedback from Niche.com users.
