Award-winning design

A renovation and expansion project was completed at Niles North High School in the summer of 2023.

A three-story, 43,000 square-foot addition and a 16,000 square-foot renovation are part of the innovative design of the school. The project resulted in a secure vestibule, new spaces for parent/caregiver and visitor services, collaborative learning studios, classrooms, mothers’ and wellness lounges, student commons, and meeting spaces.
