This PowerPoint introduces the changes for the 2010-2011 school year that will phase in the new educational program for Lake Washington High School. The sophomore class will be divided into “houses” that will stay together for core classes.
The new Lake Washington High School will open in 2011 to a new building and changes in how the educational program works. Research shows that students who have strong connections to least one adult at school, who are challenged in their school work and who find that work relevant are most likely to be successful in school and in life. LWHS teachers have spent the last year researching the best ways to achieve that success. This PowerPoint presentation, given to parents of junior high school students in April, provides information on the educational program changes and the new building.
This report shows the analysis of whether to proceed on this modernization project with a new building or by renovating the old building.
