The Wallington High School Chapter of Glamour Gals was tied for the most journaling this service year with another high school from New York. 85% of the girls in the chapter have written at least one journal. The journals are normally written after a makeover to reflect or based on prompts they have to discuss their volunteering experience.
Multiple Wallington High School Students have distinguished themselves with strong scores on Advanced Placement Tests. Our 2018 Valedictorian, Alexis Russo Heinick, earned the College Board's prestigious "AP Scholar Award" which is granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.
Wallington is a small community, slightly less than one square mile in area, located eight miles from New York City on the banks of the Passaic River. The district has three schools serving over 1,325 students: Jefferson School (K-3), Frank W. Gavlak School (K-6), and Wallington Jr./Sr. High School (7-12). Students are encouraged to participate in the vast range of co-curricular programs (i.e. student government, journalism, drama, athletics, music, clubs, Academic Decathlon, etc). There is a strong connection between the school and community as evidenced by Parent-Teacher groups: the PTA at the elementary level, and the Home & School Organization at the secondary school level. The school district promotes traditional values important to the community- Loyalty, Family, Patriotism, and Tolerance towards others.
