Did you go to Irving Crown High School?

Irving Crown High

The school was named after Mr. Irving Crown.  A lot of the members of the Carpentersville Memories Facebook page went to high school here.

The building was built in 1964.  This high school was added to the area in response to an increase in population; Dundee couldn’t handle the number of students (student population got too big). The first year it had only sophomores and juniors (it was a senior high at that time).  They wanted to let seniors graduate where the spent the majority of their high school ‘career’.

The mascot was a Viking. Female sport teams where the Lady Vikings.  Viking was usually shortened to Vikes.  School colors were royal blue and white.  The marching band was known as the Imperials.
