Choosing a high school can be a daunting task, and every student and family has different criteria they’re looking for in academics, teachers, student life, and extracurricular activities. We interviewed a few of LuHi’s dedicated students to find out how they chose to be a Lion, and if their expectations for a great school have been met in LuHi.
We have been back at it in a unique way at Lutheran High. In person classes are going well and we are excited to witness the success of distance learning in each classroom via Zoom. We know this has presented challenges for students and their families — their adaptability has been inspiring! We wanted to find out how our teachers were experiencing the changes in their own classrooms, so we sat down with Alicia Kidston (Dean of Women, English Teacher), Hannah Swafford (Social Studies Teacher), and David Black (Teacher, Director of Lights Academy). Each gave us a glimpse into the changes they’ve made to contribute to the success of their students.
What have you been up to since you graduated Lutheran High?
After graduating from LuHi in 2019 I began my first semester of college at Grand Canyon University studying communications. During my time at GCU I got very involved with the organization Turning Point USA, which is an American conservative nonprofit organization. I became an officer for my chapter, which gave me the opportunity to attend the Western Regional Conference in Newport Beach, California.
Life is full of transitions. Every year brings new changes that can alter your carefully plotted schedules and plans. When will things ever be normal and predictable for a while? Now, before you even realized, high school has sneaked up on you, and you’re facing another big shift in the status quo.
Time flies, and for prospective students (and especially their parents) the time to choose a high school can come quickly. Once the school year starts and you really ramp up your search and exploration of potential high schools for your child, your calendar is sure to fill up quickly.
Each year, the administration at Lutheran High starts looking towards next year to think through what we can add, expand, and improve to make our school even better equipped to serve students in the future. This year is no different. We are excited to share plans to expand all aspects of the school from athletic and academic to the physical building.
Finding the best school to academically nurture and challenge your children is critical to their success. For many families, paying for that academic investment in their children is a major stressor.
So, you’re ready to start the hunt for the right high school. Whether you’re not sure where to begin or if you already have a running list of questions, the LuHi Admissions Team is here to help you decide if we are a good fit for you.
