Downers Grove North High School
4436 Main St.
Downers Grove, IL 60515
Since it first opened in 1928, Downers Grove North High School has been a prominent high school in the Chicago area. As a result of a collaborative spirit and hard work by students, teachers, parents, administrators, and our community, North High has received many academic, athletic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular accolades. For example, in the 2016 study by the U.S. News & World Report, North High is a Silver Medal School, ranking 50th in Illinois and 1,294 in the U.S. Also, Newsweek magazine ranks North High #540 out of over 15,000 public high schools in its “America’s Top High Schools” list for 2016.
Just as importantly, we have built a “Positively North” culture where all stakeholders are respectful, responsible, and engaged. As a result, it is a great time to be a Trojan! I look forward to continued and new success in the 2016-17 school year.
Thank you for your support,
Downers High, to thee we raise
With grateful hearts our songs of praise
With love sincere we pledge to thee
Our everlasting loyalty.
Thy wisdom, learning, faith and truth

May God, in all His wisdom find,
Thee worthy in heart, soul and mind;
And bless thee in thy every need
This shall forever be our creed.
Words and music by William Pohlmann c. 1935
When our teams march on the field
Our opponents’ fate is sealed;
For our teams have the stuff
When the going gets tough,
Never to our foes to yield.
With our banners flying high,
And the will to do or die,
We will ne’er give in
For we’re out to win
New glory for Downers High
Chee hee Cha ha! Cha ha ha ha !
Downers! Downers! Rah! Rah! Rah!
Here’s to our school, dear old Downers High
Long may her honor be defended.
Here’s to our team pledged to do or die,
Onward to victory and fame.
We will fight, fight, fight to win our victory.
And forever keep our banners flying high.
So sing out your praise and your loyalty
To our alma mater, Downers High
