Students pursue elite schools

As high school is coming to an end and college is approaching, most students are thinking about or working to apply to their dream schools. Some of these students are looking at elite schools such as ivy leagues, Stanford, and MIT. One of these students is junior, Sandra Moon who wishes to attend Stanford. This school stands out to her.

Students reflect on keeping their cultural identity

Whether someone continues to live in the country they were born in, or they move away for whatever reason, that doesn’t mean they forget where their heritage comes from. Regardless of where a person chooses to live, their traditions remain with them. For example, junior Thomas George, who is originally from India, brought his customs with him when he moved to America.

Students respond to the new SAT

In March 2016, several students were among the first group of people to take the new version of the SAT. Although the test has changed a bit, the preparation process is still important.

A mix of languages now available to students

All around the world, there are different cultures that speak different languages. When these people move to other places, or countries, they take their languages with them.

Freshman Japhet Figueroa, who speaks Spanish, says that it has affected him positively.
