Q: How do you feel, that this chapter in your life (senior year/graduating) is coming to an end?


Sydney Dias – “I’m really happy but sad, I am really thankful that it happened and I’m thankful for all the memories, but I’m also ready to move to move on with life and start a new chapter”


Diana L. Santoyo – “I used to say, I wanted my high school chapter to come to a end, but now that we are very few weeks away its starting to get a bit emotional and I am coming to the realization that we will no longer be in high school ever again. I am going to miss seeing all the friends I made growing up, every day. I hope that we will all have a bright future ahead of us.


Ida Ljungkvist – ” This year has really been an amazing experience, and that its coming to an end is really sad. Not being able to see my friends all day is something I will for sure miss. My senior year here, has been so much fun and all the friends that I met here are hopefully going to be in my life when i’m in Sweden too. To sum it up, I am so sad that the year is coming to an end. I wouldn’t trade this year for anything.”




Ms. Rodriguez – ” Students or just people in general don’t think about it, if it doesn’t go your way the first time, it will eventually, don’t be so hard on yourself.  Seniors you may have this plan, but it may not work out, so always have a backup plan. Don’t be too hard on yourself, I think that’s where a lot of seniors struggle, they don’t know what’s next, they don’t know where they want to be, or what they want to do. You don’t have to know, but have some kind of plan for you to, do better for yourself, to grow as an individual and to have a plan, I think that’s what’s important.”
