Welcome back to school, Rockfordians! Where does your kids' school rank on the list?

Every year, Niche releases a list of the top ranked schools in the area and we're taking a look at the Rockford list.

Before we start, here's a look at how the list is created.

The 2018 Best Public High Schools ranking is based on rigorous analysis of academic and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with test scores, college data, and ratings collected from millions of Niche users.

Millions of users must mean the list is accurate right?
