Looking for Change

A petition started by a current student has surfaced online that criticizes Naperville North for putting too much pressure on students. That petition is posted on Change.org and has garnered over 1,000 responses from students, parents and educators. It asks officials to change their definition of success and instead help students to create their own path to a happy and health life. The petition was prompted by a recent suicide by a student from Naperville North. District 203 officials say they are reviewing the comments and suggestions on the petition.
