Academic Priorities

This is a very busy time of year for a student. As a senior in the International Baccalaureate program, I am currently in the midst of my final exams. These tests are unique in that they are all given on the exact same date to IB students around the world. My scores on these tests will determine several things, including which college credits I receive and whether or not I earn my IB diploma. After working through this program for a total of four years I am happy to say it was worth all the extra time spent studying, completing homework assignments, and performing labs. Now that my time in high school is near a conclusion, I am beginning to reflect upon the memories and friends I have made over the years. It is very interesting to see that the most memorable moments were when I was sailing in different regattas. The next few weeks will primarily be spent studying for these exams and sailing when I have the free time. Southeast High School's graduation will be held on May 31st and I am looking forward to walking along that stage and moving on to the next chapter of my life at Boston University.
