Naperville Central exterior wall needs to be repaired

An exterior wall at Naperville Central High School will be torn down and rebuilt after school maintenance staff found damages during a routine check.

According to the Central Times, students and parents were alerted about the fixes needed to the wall on the east side of the school through Talk 203. The wall will be fully demolished by the first day of school. The repairs will span from Central’s Little Theatre to Door 7 and will require the classrooms adjacent to the wall to be closed.

Classes that are affected by the repairs will be moved throughout the building. Naperville Central had close to 3,000 students last school year, but this year’s enrollment currently sits at 2,484.

Naperville Central’s Chase Adams makes the U.S. U-15 National Team

Naperville Central High School soccer star Chase Adams was selected to the U.S. Under-15 Men’s Youth National Team for the 2023 Concacaf Boys’ U-15 Championships.

Last fall, Adams, the 2022-23 Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year scored 22 goals and 19 assists while helping the Redhawks to their first state championship in school history.

Adams was quick to impress for the U-15 National team, as he scored a goal in the first game of the group stage to help the U.S. defeat Qatar 3-2. The team’s second match kicks off tonight in the Dominican Republic against Cuba at 5 p.m. and can be streamed on Concacaf platforms.
