Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: The St. Charles North High School Class of 2020 has modeled leadership, commitment to excellence, and service to the community during their four years in high school. Over their years at St. Charles North, they won state athletic titles, competitive club championships, academic recognition, and dedicated countless hours serving others. I am incredibly proud of the spirit, tenacity, talent, and character of these students. Their positive influence has left its mark on me and our school.
