<h3 class="breakHead">Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The NNHS Class of 2020 is truly a special class of students. They are dedicated to Naperville North, their communities, families and each other. The resilience, grit and determination they have shown this spring during the pandemic is nothing short of incredible! In spite of all the special events and activities they've lost, they were consistently more focused on the health and well-being of those who were serving our community. This class will be in our hearts forever and look forward to seeing the amazing accomplishments that they will most surely add to our world.</h3>
