ALBANY PARK — Chicago Public Schools' latest school quality ratings are out and a number of neighborhood schools have reached the district's highest level.

The system assigns schools one of five ratings —from the lowest of Level 3 (requiring intensive support) to the highest of Level 1+ (in good standing) — based on a variety of achievement and growth measurements, including attendance, test scores and whether a school is considered "well organized."

In addition to the schools that retained their Level 1+ rating, several jumped to the highest level in 2016: Albany Park Multicultural Academy, Bateman, Disney II Magnet, Hibbard, Palmer and Peterson.

Here's how each school fared. We've included links to schools' 2015 reports; 2016 aren't yet available:
