The WRHS Bank opened for business on August 17, 2005. Silver Lake Bank donated equipment, start-up cash, and also provides ongoing training support and financial instruction. The WRHS Bank is run by the Banking and Finance students as well as 2nd year Investing students.
The WRHS Bank provides financial services to students, faculty, WRHS organizations, and staff of WRHS. Those services include check cashing, opening savings accounts, processing deposits, distributing monthly statements, and issuing checks. The WRHS Bank is open during lunch.
Students are able to open an account with a $7 minimum deposit. The WRHS Bank allows students to deposit and withdraw funds at any time during their designated lunch period. There is no minimum balance on student’s savings accounts.
We promote and provide an educational environment in which employees can be free to express innovative ideas and ways to improve our services to the WRHS student body, staff, and community. We provide customers with the best banking environment while educating our customers about responsible financial practices.
