The Washington Post published the “High School Challenge Index.” The index ranks high schools across the state and is based on the number of AP tests taken divided by the number of seniors who graduated. AP is considered the most rigorous curriculum students can be exposed to and students who take AP courses and take an AP exam, regardless of how well they perform, are more likely to be successful in college.

Westmont High School is ranked eighth in the state and the top public high school in DuPage County. Nationally, Westmont High School ranks in the top 1% of all high schools.
