Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The Class of 2020 achieved a great deal of success in the classroom and in the various athletics/activities that we offer as a school. From Illinois State Scholars to State Champions to All-State Productions and a National Merit Finalist -- this class had a bit of everything. What really sticks out about the Class of 2020 though is their advocacy for mental health supports, their inclusion of students within our Functional Life Skills program and their leadership as we pursued new blended learning course offerings as a school. This class will also be remembered for their positivity and resilience as they were challenged with the difficult situation to end their high school career.
