The Class of 2018 came in to this school together and now they’re getting ready to leave together. There’s only one more month left of this school year, and it’s nerve wracking to think about. The future is starting and some students are taking it like a champ. During College application week over 80% of students filled out an application to go to college. That number usually drops a little by the end of the year, but over 80% of the Seniors at one point decided they want to further their education.
