Based on PSAE scores, the top ten elementary schools in the Chicago metro area are: Field Park Elementary (Western Springs school dist 101), Kildeer Countryside Elementary (school dist 96 in Long Grove/Buffalo Grove), Madison Elementary (school dist 181 in Hinsdale/Clarendon Hills), Lincoln Elementary (North Shore school dist 112 in Highland Park), Dryden Elementary (Arlington Heights school dist 25), River Woods Elementary (Naperville school dist 203), Prospect Elementary (school dist 181 in Hinsdale/Clarendon Hills), Cherokee Elementary (Lake Forest school dist 67), Arbor View Elementary (Glen Ellyn school dist 89), and Lincoln Elementary (River Forest school dist 90).

The top ten middle schools in the metro area are: Kennedy Junior High (Naperville school dist 203), Joseph Sears School (Kenilworth school dist 38), Carleton Washburne Middle School (Winnetka school dist 36), Sunset Ridge Elementary (school dist 29 in Northfield), Butler Junior High (school dist 53 in Oak Brook), Bannockburn Elementary (Bannockburn school dist 106), McClure Junior High (Western Springs school dist 101), Daniel Wright Junior High (Lincolnshire-Prairieview school dist 103), Clarendon Hills Middle School (school dist 181 in Hinsdale/Clarendon Hills), and Twin Groves Middle School (school dist 96 in Long Grove/Buffalo Grove).

That doesn't include elementary or middle schools in the Chicago Public School district, because my data doesn't include those. However, Chicago Public schools are included in the high schools. Here are the top ten high schools in the Chicago metro area: Northside College Prep (Chicago Public Schools), Payton College Prep (Chicago Public Schools), Young Magnet High School (Chicago Public Schools), New Trier (in Winnetka), Hinsdale Central, Deerfield, Stevenson (in Lincolnshire), Naperville Central, Glenbrook North (in Northbrook), and Naperville North.

There are many school districts in Skokie and Morton Grove. Districts 67 and 73 are the only ones I'd send my kids to, based on the test scores. The high schools there, Niles West and Niles North, rank 48th and 55th in the metro area, respectively.
