Reavis High School is a public high school located in Burbank, Illinois. It is named for Dr. William Claude Reavis (1881–1955), a professor at the University of Chicago who played a major role in guaranteeing its completion.

Reavis is the only school in Cook County High School District 220, making the school and the district one and the same.


In 2010, Reavis had an average composite ACT score of 19.5 and graduated 96.3% of its senior class.[11] The average class size is 20.4.[11] Reavis has not made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on the Prairie State Achievement Examination, which the state of Illinois uses to assess schools as is mandated in the federal No Child Left Behind Act.[11]

Athletics and activities[edit]

Reavis competes in the South Suburban Conference, which was formed in 2006. Prior to this, the school was a part of the South Inter-Conference Association (SICA). Reavis is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA), which governs most sports and competitive activities in the state.

The following Reavis teams won their respective state championship tournaments sponsored by the IHSA:[12]

  • Football: 1982-83
