Advice for high school students going into their last year

Aagaman Kulasegaran


The final year of high school year is a whirlwind of events, exams, and decision-making, but it's also a time to live in the moment. While we aren't saying forget about all the important stuff but during this last year, be open to spontaneous adventures with your friends. Whether it's a last-minute trip, a random diner, or an impromptu beach day, some of the best memories are often made on the spur of the moment.

Go All Out for End of Year Events

Prom, senior skip day, senior pranks, senior trips—these are the hallmark events that mark the end of your high school journey. Participate in these events wholeheartedly. Dress up for prom, plan a memorable skip day with your friends (responsibly, of course), and make sure the senior trip is filled with laughter and shared experiences.

Appreciate Each Other

In the rush of preparing for the future, it's easy to overlook the value of the present. Take the time to appreciate your friends. Let them know how much they mean to you, reminisce about shared experiences, and create a yearbook filled with heartfelt messages to commemorate your time together.

Stay Safe and Responsible

While having fun is essential, safety and responsibility are paramount. Always make wise decisions, look out for one another, and know your limits. You want your memories to be filled with joy, not regrets.

Cherish the Journey


As your last year of high school unfolds, remember that it's not just about the destination but the journey. Each day is an opportunity to create something special with your friends, so relish every moment.
Senior year is a whirlwind, but it's also a precious time to bond with your friends before embarking on new paths. Enjoy every moment, laugh a lot, make memories, and savor the experiences that will shape your lifelong friendships.
