Hononegah High School
#2 Best High Schools for STEM in Rockford Area
- Public School
- ROCKTON, IL
- Rating 3.98 out of 5 442 reviews
Senior: I had a great educational experience at Hononegah. I had my ups and downs throughout my high school career, but I had a great support of friends and teachers who cared about me. There were so many ways to get involved with student activities and further my leadership abilities by taking on different tasks. The band room became my home and where I felt the most accepted by all my fellow musicians.
If I had to change something about Hononegah, it would be just the way that students feel accepted and how administration deals with bullying. I think there should be a system in place to help students (especially underclassmen) find friends and have an upperclassmen be there for them as they begin to navigate high school. I think they should also add more storage so that certain equipment isn't stored in the hallways.
Overall, I had the best four years of my life at Hononegah and I wouldn't change a thing!

Junior: I love the academics and learning environment at Auburn High School! I also loved the diversity overall every nationality, religion, and culture was accepted there. Auburn taught me that this divided nation can learn about equality, equal treatment, equality privileges, and unity from one school!

Byron High School
#5 Best High Schools for STEM in Rockford Area
- Byron Community Unit School District No. 226, IL
- Rating 3.78 out of 5 55 reviews
Alum: I was so fortunate to go to school here — AMAZING school district. I loved the teachers, they were always helpful & there for you and were amazing teachers Academically with great personalities. The school is very football oriented and other sports don’t get as much attention; however, the Football team has a history of being great (which brings in money & attention) & the head coach does a ton of fundraising (unlike many other sports) — so it makes sense why the town is so football oriented. This was my only complaint about going there, being a female who played sports other than football, but i understand why my sports didn’t receive the attention or funding that football did. Anyone who speaks less about this school didn’t utilize their resources or has biased information.

Stillman Valley High School
#7 Best High Schools for STEM in Rockford Area
- Meridian Community Unit School District No. 223, IL
- Rating 3.7 out of 5 91 reviews
Senior: Stillman Valley High School to me is home, at least the last 2 semesters. With all of the change in the world in 2020 Stillman Valley High School has really put forth there best effort to create a simple and easy hybrid learning style. Meaning the district installed "Pexip" cameras and Monitors in every class room to live stream every single moment of class. By installing this system the teachers and freely move around the classroom as the were teaching a regular class. This works seamlessly with the district's hybrid plan. The hybrid plan allows students who do not feel safe to learn at school join the classes live stream from home. While other students may go to school and sit in while the teacher conducts his/he lessons for the day. This plan is centered around a block schedule. Students are in-person four days a week leaving Wednesday as a full remote day. This gives the amazing custodians a day to disinfect everything. In all my time at Stillman it was safe and educational.
