  PMSA Ranked Among Top High Schools by Newsweek

 
 

Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy is ranked among the top high schools in the United States, according to Newsweek magazine.

PMSA was ranked 230th nationally overall based on its college readiness index score devised by Newsweek and research company, Westat, for the magazine’s top high schools list. It also ranked PMSA 10th among the 16 Illinois schools that made the overall top list. In addition, in the magazine’s “Beating the Odds” rankings, which factor in a school’s college readiness ranking and its level of poverty, PMSA ranked 65th in the country and third among Illinois high schools.

The scores for the schools on the lists, which ranked the top 500 high schools, were computed with a formula weighing its enrollment rate, graduation rate, weighted Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate composite scores, weighted SAT and ACT composite scores, its holding power (change in student enrollment between freshman and senior years), and its counselor-to-student ratio, according to the magazine.

  District 209 Parents Get Look at Schools on Back to School Night

 
 

Parents at Proviso East High School, Proviso West High School, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy got a look at what their students are learning at the annual "Back to School Night" on Thursday, September 4.

The Back to School Night is one of several initiatives through the Board of Education to promote more outreach to the parents and the community. The two-hour evening open house is designed to build relationships between parents and schools and introduce parents to their students’ teachers, said Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, superintendent of District 209. At this event, more than 550 parents learned about the Title I programs at the schools, visited classrooms, met teachers, and found out what their students will be learning.

“It was an opportunity for the parents to come and meet the teachers and the administration and discuss ways they can help their students be successful in their high school careers,” Dr. Collins-Hart said. “We were pleased with the turnout, and we ask our parents to continue to remain involved in our schools and invested in their children’s education.”
