At North School, we have an amazing, dedicated staff that is committed to providing each child with the best education possible. The staff’s mission is to provide a rigorous educational program that challenges students and prepares them for the future. Our dynamic learning community is committed to collaborating to ensure high levels of learning for every student.

We expect our students at North School to be peaceful, exhibit respect, responsibility and problem solving skills. North School has received Platinum recognition from the the state of Illinois for the implementation of PBIS for the last three year for our work with social emotional learning. In addition to the wonderful learning community at North School, the following clubs and activities are offered: Boys Club, Conservation Club, Chorus, Drumline, Girls Club, K-Kids, Safety Patrol, and Welcome Buddies. North has a fantastic PTA organization that provides academic and social programs that enrich our learning community. I am very fortunate to work with such an amazing staff and families.
