How Do Seniors Feel About Graduating This Year?

Graduation is right around the corner for seniors. We have about one week left and then we are done unless you have to take exams which is everyone. We all have to take our English exams but if you have other exams then that must really suck.  

This is how some seniors feel about graduating this year.   

“I’m excited but I’m also going to be a little sad. I’ll miss some of the teachers and a select few staff and being able to see my friends every day.”-Aiden Disel 

“Honestly, it’s bittersweet. I spent most of my life here so leaving will feel weird, but I am excited to branch out and see new things. Not seeing the people you grow up with every day will be a weird feeling, but graduating is part of life.”-Trang Nguyen 

“It’s very bittersweet. It’s scary to leave somewhere that you’ve been comfortable with for the past four years but it’s also exciting because you are stepping onto a new path. I will miss a couple teachers who were always good to me along with friends I’ve made here along the way.”  -Jayna Halpin 

“It’s kind of scary when you think about it because once we leave, we will leave this place forever and all our lives will change. People all go to different places and do different things. Watching them leave will hurt but remembering the good times we’ve had with everyone will be my new motivation to grow and create the same kind of bonds with other people. Graduation is scary but we will get through it.” -Madison Bremer 

“As graduation approaches, there’s a mix of emotions but the most prominent one I’m feeling is excitement. I’m excited yet nervous to move on from this era of my life, I think I’ve outgrown the high school environment. I will miss my teachers and my underclassmen friends the most. All in all, I’m ready for graduation.”-Kalea Watts 

“It’s a different feeling. I’m excited to go to college and see what my future has in store for me and at the same time I don’t want to go because I feel comfortable here.” -Herbert Hewitt 

“I feel joyful that I won’t have to wake up as early as five in the morning just to get ready for school, that I won’t have to wait for the bell to ring to leave. I’m feeling free as I won’t have the pressure of completing work in a timely manner.”-Bakayla Williams 

“I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I’m glad to move on to the next part of my life but I’m going to miss my friends and teams. I’m happy to leave with the knowledge that I have received from this school.” -Maddisyn Skatvold  

These are the seniors’ honest opinions about graduating this year.
