Best Public Schools in Zip Code 60426


The schools in the 60426 zip code area serve a predominantly minority student population, with 12 schools including 8 elementary, 3 middle, and 1 high school. These schools face significant challenges, with low academic performance, high rates of poverty, and chronic absenteeism concerns.

Thornton Township High School stands out as the largest school with 1,628 students, but it has the lowest statewide ranking and very low proficiency rates in standardized tests. In contrast, Bryant Elementary School has relatively higher proficiency rates, though its overall ranking is still low. The middle schools, such as Rosa L Parks Middle School, have particularly low proficiency rates and high chronic absenteeism.

Across the schools, the data reveals stark disparities in academic performance compared to state averages, with most schools performing significantly below standards. The high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 50% to nearly 100%, indicate high levels of economic disadvantage in the area. Addressing these challenges will likely require targeted interventions, additional resources, and community partnerships to support the unique needs of these schools and students within the Thornton Township HSD 205, South Holland School District 151, Harvey School District 152, and W Harvey-Dixmoor PSD 147 districts.
