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.
