Information about schools is a request that I often receive from potential clients. I always have information about the local schools available for all our listings. For buyers benefit, I have tried to organize the information about schools into four sections. These four sections have links to information that will answer a lot of your questions about Northwest Suburban schools as well general school questions.

How do the schools compare nationally?
Answering the question of how do Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg and area schools compare nationally is very difficult. One of the best sites I have found for comparing schools across the country is Great Schools.org .
If you are looking for an in-depth Comparison of Schools across the country or locally this is a great place to start- Public School Review.
Where are the schools and what towns do they cover?
Northwest Suburban School information school district boundaries don't always follow municipal boundaries so we have included a directory that has school district numbers by town. The Chicago area features a wide range of Catholic schools and Independent schools as well as an excellent Community College system.

How do the schools compare locally? and- How good are the schools?
How good schools are is really a subjective issue. Many people compare schools based on test scores and other demographics. The Illinois School Board of Education publishes School Profiles and Report Cards annually. For many this information will answer your questions.

What extracurricular Activities are available?
A good place to start answering this question is the bodies that govern sports and extracurricular activities.
