Walther Lutheran High School joins in National School Choice Week

Walther Lutheran HS hosted an event that represented the true spirit of National School Choice Week, a placement test and visit day. Walther has been in the community for over 50 years and is the choice for families who want a superior education.

 
PRLog - Feb. 3, 2012 - MELROSE PARK, Ill. -- National School Choice Week provides an unprecedented opportunity, every January, to shine a spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children. Planned by a diverse and nonpartisan coalition of individuals and organizations, National School Choice Week features special events and activities that highlight support for school choice programs and proposals.

US House Speaker John Boehner officially recognized National School Choice Week today, joining the governors and legislatures of 28 states and US territories in praising the largest-ever celebration of education reform in American history.

National School Choice Week (January 22-28, 2012 –www.SchoolChoiceWeek.com) has brought together tens of thousands of students, parents, teachers, community leaders, and elected officials around the simple premise that parents should be empowered to select the best schools – public district schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, virtual education, and homeschooling – for their children.

As one of the top schools in the area Walther Lutheran High School was proud to be a part of this historic week.  Walther hosted an event that represented the true spirit of National School Choice Week, a placement test and visitation day.  Walther has been in the community for over 50 years and is the choice for families who want a superior high school education.  The placement test and visitation day allowed incoming freshman to gain a perspective of the positive difference that makes Walther the best high school choice for them and prepared them to join Walther’s class of 2016.

Walther Lutheran High School was founded and built in 1954.  It is a faith based college preparatory parochial institution, drawing students from over 50 different zip codes.  Walther Lutheran is situated on the border of Maywood and Melrose Park, less than four miles from the edge of the city of Chicago.  Walther Lutheran’s school mission is to minister to God’s young people by nurturing and educating the total student.  Walther assists families by promoting spiritual, academic, social and physical development in a Christ-centered environment.
