North Shore Suburbs With The Best Schools: Top-Rated Schools Outside Chicago

Chicago North Shore Suburbs With The Best Schools

Local schools play a big role in finding which community, and ultimately which home, is right for you. If you're considering a move to Chicago's North Shore suburbs and prefer to live near some of the area's best schools, here are just a few North Shore villages you'll want to consider. 

Wilmette, IL

A lot of parents find Wilmette attractive, thanks in part to its highly ranked public schools, many of which get perfect marks from GreatSchools.org, including Central Elementary, McKenzie Elementary, Romona Elementary, and Highcrest Middle School. In fact, all schools in the Wilmette School District 39 are rated above average in terms of school quality, which is something many parents are looking for when they’re searching for a new place to call home, especially in the North Shore. 

Winnetka, IL

Just five school buildings make up Winnetka Public School District 36, so it’s a small school district, but it’s also well known as being a top destination for those seeking a true commitment to neighborhood schools. While the tree-lined streets of Winnetka often draw in homebuyers, it’s the schools that have served generations of area residents. All five schools in the district get at least an eight out of 10 from GreatSchools.org, which is certainly something to boast about in an area that’s already respected for its top public schools.

Northbrook, IL

Close to the border of Lake County, multiple school districts serve families in Northbrook, and many of those area schools get extremely high marks. Schools like Westmoor Elementary get a perfect score from GreatSchools.org, but others aren’t far behind. If you have younger kids in Northbrook, they’ll likely attend schools that are part of West Northfield School District 31, Northbrook/Glenview School District 30, Northbrook School District 28, or Northbrook School District 27, but it’s possible your children could also attend Wheeling Community Consolidated School District 21, too. Most older kids living in the area will probably attend classes in the highly respected, Northfield Township High School District 225.

Glenview, IL

It may be only about 15 miles from the Chicago Loop, but the Village of Glenview is a great place if you want to live in the suburbs, own your own house, and send your kids to one of the region’s top schools. The schools here are highly rated, which is what makes Glenview particularly attractive to families, so much so that Niche.com gives Glenview an overall grade of an A+, with equally high marks for its public schools. Elementary schools like Henry Winkelman, which serves kids in up to the fifth grade, get a nearly perfect grade from GreatSchools.org, with top scores for student progress and test scores. Glen Grove Elementary School is another highly rated school in the area, with its own top marks for student progress and test scores. 

Lake Forest, IL 

While living right on Lake Michigan is certainly an attractive option for homebuyers searching in the Chicago area, so is finding a community with top-rated schools. That’s what you’ll find in Lake Forest, which also happens to serve as home to the headquarters of some Fortune 500 companies. Lake Forest High School is one of the top employers in Lake Forest, but it also boasts its students rank high on standardized tests, and it offers dozens of AP classes and honors classes. Rondout Elementary School is a top performing school for younger students, with a 10 out of 10 rating for test scores and student progress.
