COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

D219 plans to offer instruction to all students via remote learning for the first semester of the 2020-21 school year. If the spread of Covid-19 decreases in our area and our schools can come up with plans to begin bringing students safely back to school for in-person instruction, we will do so in a limited fashion, for students who are most likely to benefit from in-person instruction.

    I just finished my sophomore year and have had a really great experience so far at Niles North! All of my teachers have been amazing at teaching as well as interacting with us. I especially love the Student Activities department at Niles North and I believe that the director (Ms. Benjamin) goes above and beyond to make all students comfortable at the school. I do think though that our school/district could improve a bit on equity, but I do believe that our school district is making progress on the issue. Niles Township High School District listens to students and their needs and try to implement positive change to their best ability. Although our building hasn't been redone since its opening (I believe in the '50s) it is well kept and provides for a welcoming environment. Overall, Niles North and Illinois' District 219 is a great place to learn and I am very proud to call myself a Viking!

    Niles Township Community High School District 219 is a very vibrant diverse school community. The academics are competitive and the teachers care about he students. I have been particularly thankful for my school Niles West High School because they are strong in their commitment to the arts. Our band director (I play clarinet, bass clarinet, and contrabass clarinet) just won the Illinois Teacher of the Year Award. This year the whole art department won the Illinois Art Education Association's Art Education Program of the Year. This means a lot to me because I am applying to art and design schools for my college career. I have learned a lot from my art teacher Mr. Z.
    My experience at Niles West has been a variety of only good things! It is a safe environment where I met great people and accomplished many things. All the teachers at West are very caring and respectful adults. All the faculty members greet their students in the hall before and after school. Also the students at West are very considerate people. Speaking for myself, I never saw a form of bullying in the hallways which is wonderful for being such a diverse high school. Since we are very diverse, everyone fits in perfectly. Everyone is so helpful at Niles West, and we have several tools that could assist students academically. Being a senior at West, I couldn’t say anything bad about the school!
