Hey, you! Yes, you! Yeah, sure, you too. You know what? You all better go to school, or you’ll miss out in life!
School is a very important matter. Do you want to succeed? Do you want to do well? Are all of these things worth it? Yes, they are. Trying your best and succeeding in school helps everyone to get to a better future. Jason, Daniel, Mariana, Juan (Carlos) Ramirez, and one teacher, Ms. Marquez talked about interesting topics regarding high school life and tips.
Juan (Carlos) Ramirez, a freshman, overcame many struggles in school and has some tips towards what students should do in order to succeed. “School is important because whatever you put in, that is what you're going to get out in the future,” he says. Carlos believes that school is the key to success. He thinks that even though it may seem tough, work through it because it will all pay off in the end. He even added that a tutor may be what someone needs if they’re struggling.
Jason Acosta, a senior, has a very strong opinion of why school is important and why we should continue trying. He has been here since this school opened and wants to leave a mark behind after graduating. He wants to help set a culture that can stay for generations of future Firewolves. School, for him, means more than someone can even imagine. “School can provide a valuable connection with succeeding in the future and I really feel like your studies and how well you’re going to do in the work field are correlated together…,” he says. Whatever you learn in these four years is going to affect you in the future.
For Daniel Rangel, school is also very important. Since he was elected president for Helping Hands, he wants to be able to fundraise enough money to go on a field trip. Daniel wants the best for Samueli Academy and is determined to help out to get to the top. “You always want to have options on the table, you don’t want to do badly in school ...you always want to have a backup plan just in case something doesn’t work, you have your education…” says Daniel.
Mariana, a sophomore, believes that procrastination is never a good thing. Always asking questions is her way of getting to the top of her game. Trying and never giving up is also a major key to success. For her, doing well in school means doing well in life.
Finally, Ms. Marquez. She as a teacher has been observing the students for the past four years in Samueli Academy. She says that each year the kids seem to be improving academically and in their behavior. Ms. Marquez only wishes the best for each student here at Samueli and hopes that each student leaves Samueli Academy proud. Ms. Marquez was once in high school as well and understands why and how the students may be struggling. All she can say is, “Talk to the teachers and always ask for help.”
You see? Without school, there isn’t a lot of options for one in the future. Remember that school is very important now and tomorrow. The hard work you put in now will pay off in the future.
