A new report from US News ranks Evanston Township High School 21st among more than 700 high schools in Illinois.
The report also said ETHS placed 524th in the national ranking.
Evanston's position in the ranking slipped a bit from last year. It achieved silver status, down from a gold ranking in 2013.
Eight Chicago schools and and 12 other suburban schools came out ahead of ETHS in the rankings.
Among the suburban schools that topped ETHS, all had a far lower percentage of economically disadvantaged students than the 41 percent who receive free or reduced-price lunches at Evanston High.
