Class Reunions

  • Class reunions of Evanston Township High School graduates are very special events that are planned and coordinated by volunteer ETHS alumni. The Alumni Office is here to provide you with the resources to make your reunion an event to remember.

    Those interested in taking the leadership role of coordinating their class reunions are encouraged to notify the Alumni Office at 847-424-7157. We will provide you with the latest issue of the ETHS Class Reunion Handbook and publish class reunion information on the ETHS website and in the KIT.

    Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate school tours during the summer months (June 1- September 1) due to building repairs and cleaning.

    Each fall, Homecoming brings thousands of alumni and their families and friends back to Evanston for an unforgettable weekend of reconnecting and cheering on the Wildkits!
