Principal Shanna Lewis

I know the school year is going to bring us many opportunities to celebrate our students and staff. I am confident that this year will provide new opportunities to recognize excellence.

We have seen some challenges and we have faced these challenges with perseverance and resilience. Our North Star successes were recognized nationally when St. Charles North was identified as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2022. 

As we move forward, our dedication to academic excellence and personal growth is unwavering. With the D303 Strategic Plan as our guide, we will ground all of our work in the core values of Belonging, Perseverance and Achievement. We will work to provide each student a positive high school experience. We know that high student success requires a strong partnership between home and school. We are grateful to have a supportive community.

We know our students reach high levels of achievement when they have access to our high quality educators, abundant resources and instructional coherence. We will also encourage our students to engage in school activities, clubs and athletics to align with their passion and interests.

Every day is a great day to be a North Star!

Your very proud principal,

Shanna Lewis
