National School Choice Week (January 22-28, 2012 –www.SchoolChoiceWeek.com)
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.
