Twelve years attending the same school. Seems crazy right?
We have six seniors who have attended here 1st through 12th grade. That’s 10% of our graduating Class of 2019!
We caught up with these six original seniors for a question and answer. They’ve walked the same halls, eaten lunch in the same auditorium, and entered through the same front doors here for over half their age. These students have seen GPA undergo many changes over the years. What is on their mind now?
