Out of 92,743 public schools, 30,122 private schools, and 11,820 school districts nationwide, British International School of Chicago, South Loop was ranked #4 Best K-12 Private School in Illinois, #5 Best Private High School in Illinois and #5 Best College Prep Private High School in Illinois and both the Lincoln Park and South Loop campuses received A+ grades for their academics, teachers and diversity.


"We have always known that we have superb schools, but until recently we’ve felt like we were Chicago’s best kept secret" said Mike Henderson, Executive Principal of the British International School of Chicago. "Watching South Loop move up the Niche rankings to the current position as 4th best private K-12 school in Illinois (and 86th in the whole of the United States) is extremely gratifying and a just reward for all the hard work and dedication of our staff, students and their families. BISC-SL and LP are wonderful places to work and to learn and I guess the secret is out now!”


BISC-South Loop also made the grade and was ranked the fourth best K-12 private school in Cook County, as well as being named as the following:

  • #4 Best Private High School in Cook County
  • #4 Best College Prep Private High Schools in Cook County
  • #11 Best High Schools for STEM in Cook County
  • #11 Most Diverse Private High School in Cook County


BISC-Lincoln Park is not ranked alongside other high schools and is only given a grade per Niche ranking criteria because it is a toddler – 5th grade campus. However, graduates from Lincoln Park automatically matriculate to the South Loop campus for Middle and High School.


Now in its ninth year, Niche's rankings were created to provide families with valuable quantitative and qualitative information on schools in their area or neighborhood.


"Some of the biggest decisions parents face have to do with their children's education," said Luke Skurman, founder, and CEO of Niche. "We strive to put as much power in their hands as possible so they can confidently make informed decisions. Our 2023 rankings surface key insights and data points for parents everywhere to use in their school search. We're honored that millions of families consider us a reliable resource during such a pivotal moment in their lives."
