PMSA Jumps Ahead in Recent U.S. News & World Report Rankings

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 || By Michael Romain || @maywoodnews

Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy was recently ranked 32 among 658 Illinois high schools included in the most recent school rankings released by U.S. News & World Report.

The list, U.S. News Best High Schools Rankings, considers data on 28,496 public high schools in the country. PMSA was ranked 1,044 among those high schools nationwide, good for a Silver medal. Last year, PMSA received a Bronze medal.

Last August, PMSA garnered the top spot in Chicago Magazine’s ranking of the top 20 high schools in suburban Cook County.

“We are elated with the 2017 ranking,” stated PMSA Principal Dr. Bessie Karvelas in a recent statement. “These wonderful results would not have been possible without our teachers and students who continue to be proud of their school and their accomplishments.”

Karvelas thanked the school’s “committed faculty, leadership team and devoted parents” for the ranking, adding that her administration seeks a gold medal in the future.

“We are proud of our school community’s commitment to academic excellence as it continues to demonstrate high levels of educational attainment,” said D209 Supt. Jesse J. Rodriguez. “The designation shows, once again, the potential of PTHS D.209. We are Proviso Proud.” VFP

  1. Congratulations to Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy. I am hoping that the new elected candidates for the board of education, District #209 can make sure that Proviso East and Proviso West High Schools can have high achieving schools, the same way as PMSA with world class expectations. PMSA is all fine and dandy as a magnet school, but I am a firm believer in public education. I always stated that buildings don’t teach children, it is suppose to be people. I always questioned why can’t Proviso East and Proviso West have the same high expectations than PMSA.

  2. Never been more excited and PROUD!!! Well done.
    East will make a list of Greatness next… Thanks in advance school board. Thanks!

    1. B. LEWIS: Also, do not forget about Proviso West too making the list as well.
