Berwyn’s campaign to attract gay residents, which we’ve mentioned before, becomes easier to understand once you take a closer look at Berwyn’s schools. They’re a major barrier to moving there for families who have other options.

Berwyn South District 100’s elementary schools would be considered subpar by many parents, and have failed to make adequate yearly progress. District 100 schools do score higher than Berwyn North District 98 schools.

Berwyn’s Morton West high school is on academic watch, had a composite ACT score of 17.8 (below the 34th percentile), and graduated only 77.6% of its seniors.
