Holly OwensWelcome from Holly Owens, Principal

Welcome to North City School. We are pleased and honored to serve your child. Our major focus each year is to help your child feel safe while reaching his/her full potential academically and socially. We are excited about the many activities and programs that will be part of your child’s academic year. By making school a priority both in your child’s and your life, we will see great achievement in this school year. I would like to extend an invitation for parents and family members to visit our school, attend our school programs, and become an active member of the PTO and parent volunteer program.
