COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Niles North 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.
