Argo Community High School is a public four-year high school located in Summit, Illinois. The district draws students from the communities of Summit, Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Justice, Willow Springs, and a portion of Hickory Hills. The school was named for the area surrounding the large "Argo" corn processing plant located near the school, which is currently owned by Ingredion. In 2014, Argo was awarded a Bronze Medal by U.S. News & World Report for outstanding academic performance, the only school in the South Suburban Conference to receive such recognition.

Sports[edit]

The school competes as a member of the South Suburban Conference. It also competes in state championship series sponsored by the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). Argo sponsors interscholastic teams for men and women in basketball, bowling, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. There are men's teams in baseball, football, and wrestling. Women may compete in badminton and softball.[3]
