Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The St. Charles East High School Class of 2020 has exemplified "The Saints Way" through their leadership, academic, athletic, and extracurricular accomplishments, and service to the community over the past four years. Their resilience, spirit, and pride will serve as a model for future classes of Saints. I am extremely proud of each individual and the group as a whole, and am excited to see the positive impact they will continue to have on the greater community.
