Advice to Students
High school is not life, and life is not high school. Look beyond this time and these walls.
Think about the person you hope to be, the things you enjoy doing, and the paths that are open to you to realize both of these goals. Maybe you can start pursuing those paths here. If not, just make sure you don’t close doors you may well want to open later.
High school is the beginning of your options in life, not the end of them.
