It’s true. We have high standards for our students at Lutheran High. We want them to succeed at the highest levels, and to be so much more than just “functioning adults.” We want to help out students become compassionate, giving, loving, intelligent members of society who are committed to God, and who impact the world in big ways. This goal drives everything we do at LuHi, and we are strategic in supporting students to achieve it. We are proud of our school’s culture of improvement and growth. Let’s talk more about what that means.
Starting high school is an exciting time of life. It’s a new phase, a chance to start fresh, or to continue pursuing your dreams and goals. Many students wonder how to make their first year of high school the best it can possibly be. Start the journey off right with 10 great things to keep in mind to make the most of your freshman year in academics, athletics, social life and spiritual development.
We see students at Lutheran High School as leaders, both in their classrooms and in their future careers and peer relationships. Now, one doesn’t have to lead by being captain of a sports team or always having the highest grades in the class--though these are hardly bad aspirations. Simply being involved in school and extracurricular activities are an excellent way for students to foster strong leadership potential and healthy lifestyle habits that will serve them well for the decades to come.
Ever heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for?” It’s an idiom that’s thrown around a lot and often accepted as so-called common sense. The more you pay for something, the more value you should expect in return. Stretching the logic a bit, many people then assume that the more something costs, such as a car or designer clothes, the more inherent value or quality those things should have.
What is Access?
Access enables and bolsters the success of every Lutheran High School student with a learning difference, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or other diagnoses, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In this study-hall-style class, eligible students receive individualized attention and instruction specific to their unique needs. While in Access, students can work on school assignments, study for tests, connect with teachers, and work on strategies to address school-related issues, such as organization, time management, communication, and study skills. And throughout the Access period, the teacher is there for students, with regular check-ins to ensure follow through, troubleshooting, and overall support.
Our teenage years are years of turbulence and growth. As young men and women transition into adulthood, their physical and emotional changes, along with the pressures of school, can sometimes lead to social or behavioral problems. This is a normal part of getting older; however, how these mistakes or problems are handled can dramatically affect your child’s emotional growth.
High school is a tumultuous time for many young men and women. There are a lot of changes going on! Physical, emotional, and literal changes to surroundings can be challenging for teenagers. It’s a busy, crucial time in their development; and a supportive environment at home and at school is incredibly important.
All parents want their children to be loved and supported throughout their lives. Particularly in high school, relationships can be challenging and stressful. As children grow into young adults, they are dealing with a range of emotions and changes that can be confusing and frustrating.
Academics are such a critical component of a successful high school education, it can be difficult to look beyond them when building out an ideal experience for your children. But high school clubs also have a tremendous impact on success in high school and beyond.
Parents who research high school choices for their children weigh many factors in order to make the best possible decisions. In many cases, class size ranks highly among those factors. For parents who are considering private schools, there is often a profound difference in class size versus public schools.
