COURTESY OF LYONS TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL
Lyons Township High School was one of just 60 Illinois school districts honored with a Bright A+ award. The award is based on academic performance, and districts earning the award are among the top 5% of all Illinois school districts. High school districts were judged based on the ACT composite score of all students tested.
The Bright A awards are sponsored by School Search, a firm that provides comparative school district information to corporations, homebuilders, libraries, real estate professionals and relocating families.
Not only does LT score in the top 5% in the state, LT’s ACT score of 23.6 is significantly higher than state average of 20.6 and the national average of 21.1. Each year nearly 90 percent of LT graduating seniors are college-bound. Their outstanding ACT scores are instrumental in gaining admittance into top colleges and universities across the country.
