For many, four years sounds as though it would be a long time; however, for me it was a time period I would do anything to get back. For starters, the teachers were so caring and did more than teach their students the curriculum. They taught us how to be members of society and that we mattered. Besides the academic portion, North was a place that took a great deal of pride in their accomplishments. If one were to hear about us it could be as a result of our music program, sports, clubs or even academics. This was a high school that never failed to amaze! With this being said, there were many complications and moments that this school would be found in the news as a result of unforeseen circumstances. Now, there is not one person to blame; however, it would be unfortunate to hear and see consistently throughout the media.
There is no other place I would rather be than Naperville North High School. From upper administration to lunch staff, everyone there cares so much about the future and well being of their students. Although a rather large student body, it never feels like it is too much for the school to handle. The school is extremely gifted in the resources they offer their students in every aspect of their educational career. I am definitely lucky to attend such a school!
