Wheeling Park High School Principal Amy Minch believes her school offers exciting opportunities for students regardless of their interests.
She said that's what "All About Park" will show potential students at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at WPHS. Private and parochial school students and all Ohio County Schools eighth-graders interested in attending Wheeling Park High School, along with their parents and guardians, are invited to the event.
"Wheeling Park High School offers the best in any subject a student may wish to pursue - advanced placement, the arts and career and technical education," Minch said. "We want to show potential students that they won't find a better education anywhere. The athletics and extracurricular organizations offer activities for everyone and for basically every interest, and I think they will discover that if they attend 'All About Park.'"
