"When American suburbs are compared with two of the top school systems in the world – in Finland and Singapore – very few, such as Evanston, IL., and Scarsdale, N.Y., outperform the international competition."

~The Wall Street Journal Nov. 14, 2012 

 

Evanston Township High School continues to maintain its reputation as one of the finest public high schools in the country thanks to the vision of our leaders, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the generosity of our alumni, parents, and other friends. Our supporters understand that excellence doesn't happen by accident: it requires a steady infusion of time, talent, and financial resources. Through individual, corporate, and foundation gifts, the Foundation is able to raise and distribute funds to the high school in order to complement, enhance and enrich beyond the means of conventional public funding, opportunities that further the educational mission of Evanston Township High School.

ETHS’s advancement team has developed comprehensive fund-raising programs that offer the opportunity for every member of our community to make a difference. Our Executive Director, Fran Caan, is pleased to help supporters develop a gift plan, including planned giving opportunities, that fits their particular needs and interests. Current funding priorities include the construction of an advanced manufacturing lab and renovations to our planetarium.  Read here to learn more about our plans for the manufacturing lab.

 

 

 

Advanced Manufacturing at Evanston Township High School

This year we are asking alumni, parents and other members of the Evanston community to support the renovation of our manufacturing lab. To prepare students for college and careers in the digital age, we must place a greater emphasis on technical skills so that young Americans will have the expertise to become competitive in the global workforce. 

Our plan is to renovate our existing manufacturing lab to meet or exceed industry standards with the latest technologies.  We have identified industry partners to work with us to design our new lab and curriculum which will provide our young men and women interested in engineering and manufacturing with hands-on design experience and preparation for work and degree programs after high school. With this cutting edge facility and innovative curriculum, ETHS will lead the way in opening new doors for all students. 

We couldn't be more impressed by the enthusiasm of the students and faculty.

 

Please help us to kindle our students’ creative and entrepreneurial spirit with an investment in new technologies and equipment such as an automated tool control center, a computer numeric control lathe, drill presses, vertical milling machines, modern welding booths, and 3-D printers. We hope that you will agree with the importance of this initiative and make a donation today.
