Principal's reflections on the Class of 2021:

The Class of 2021 demonstrated patience and resilience throughout this school year. As IHSA sports, fine and performing arts, and extracurricular activities were opened up, the Class of 2021 gravitated to these opportunities to be with their friends, peers, directors, teachers, and coaches. They found ways to connect and be together. as a Mustang community. We are super proud of the Class of 2021. Congratulations.

-- Principal Eileen Hart
