Oak Park and River Forest High School may have been conspicuously absent in the recent U.S. News & World Report rankings for the country, but a new ranking has OPRF among the best public high schools in Illinois. 

 Niche, an education website, ranks OPRF 25th best public high school in the state and 43rd best high school in the state for STEM education. 

According to Niche, the rankings are based on a rigorous analysis of “dozens of public data sets and millions of reviews to produce comprehensive rankings, report cards, and profiles for every K-12 school, college, and neighborhood in the U.S.”

Specific factors that are considered in the rankings include SAT/ACT scores, parent and student surveys, teacher salary, racial and economic diversity, and extracurricular participation, among others.
