The school counselor recommended that I fit LPP in my schedule since I had the room and was entering into upper level classes.

Field trips. Many of them helped me to discover and explore career options that I didn’t know before.

Helped me to become more organized, better at math and writing, and how to balance work and academics.

What are you most proud of?

What advice do you have for current students?
If you’re a senior get your plans in line. Time flies your senior year. Also if anyone ever tries to doubt your ability to get a scholarship or be accepted into a certain college, don’t listen to them. Apply to as many scholarships and colleges as you can/wish to. All you can do is try! You might just surprise yourself.
