If you really want to check out the Glenview schools... check out http://www.zipskinny.com, and punch in the zip code that you want (60025?), and look up their statistics.

Get the "skinny" on the demographics of Glenview (or any other community in the U.S.) as well.

If I may add to Beth's answer... District 34 is considered "the best" at the elementary and junior high level... District 225 at the high school level. Depending on which part of Glenview you reside, the New Trier school system is also considered "outstanding." Be well!

I think the public schools in Glenview are outstanding. I have friends that have sent their kids to the private schools in the area and other friends that have sent their kids to the public schools and to be honest, the kids at the private schools struggled with clique issues and if they were not tested to be in the high track they were placed in a lower track and it appears to be impossible to get out of the track you are placed in except to go down. The quality of education appears to be better at the public school as well. A lot of the private school kids will attend the public high schools and after talking to some of the GBS teachers they claim that the public school students are better prepared than most of the private school students. Lastly, if you live in glenview and pay taxes, why not send your kids to the public schools?

Check out the internet and see the report cards. Also check the pupil/teacher ratio and per pupil expenditure. Just keep in mind, the more affluent the community/district, the higher the test scores. High school size should be considered as well. It's a lot harder to make the baseball team or school play when there are 4000 students vs. 2000....
