<h3 class="breakHead">Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020: "The class of 2020 will always hold a special place in my heart as they are the first graduating class that I will confirm on June 13, 2020. The seniors that make up the class of 2020 are resilient, thoughtful, and solution based! They are exactly what the world needs most right now. They came to me with ideas, concerns, and above all else solutions on how to make their experience at Streamwood High School truly what they want and need it to be. I am so excited to see them achieve much, much more as they fulfill their postsecondary plans and turn those plans into reality. The graduates of 2020 will truly strive, honor, and succeed in their next endeavors."</h3>
