As the school year comes to a close, seniors bid farewell to their school for the past four years. Some lessons can’t be learned in a classroom, but by experiencing life in high school. Here are some seniors’ best pieces of advice to underclassmen on how to make the most of their time at York.

 

Morgan Gorecki

“There’s a lot of stress on thinking about life after high school. There’s a ton of people here to help you. You’re not going to have it all figured out, and that’s okay. Just try to take the time to explore your interests and explore your brain. In due time you’ll figure out what you need to know because it was there all along! My favorite classes were Philosophy, AP Psych and definitely Environmental Science.”

 

Johnny Chrisman

“My advice for underclassmen is never stand in the middle of the hallway but be a Deserving Duke always. Something I regret is not taking one of the culinary classes or a music production class, but if I had to recommend an elective, I would say Philosophy with Mr. Kern was pretty dope. One of my favorite memories from all of high school was doing the talent shows, they have a special place in my heart.”

 

Dom Peluso

“I feel like it’s important to be yourself. My senior year, I really expressed who I am and I’m a lot more comfortable with myself now–it’s never too late to start. That’s something I wish I would’ve known in my previous years. I had a lot of room for electives in my schedule this year and I spend four periods a day in the music department doing what I love. I would definitely recommend music production as an elective.”

 

Hannah Bigham

“I wish I knew senior year wasn’t a blow off year. People always say senior year–especially second semester–is a blow off year when it’s really not. It’s important to keep working hard in all your classes and take advantage of class time to get stuff done because once you get home, the motivation isn’t there. I would recommend any of the food classes to underclassmen. Those were my favorite classes at York and there is so much you can learn from them while having fun.”

 

Dan Mucci

“Do your homework because I didn’t and I regret it. Teachers can actually help you, especially with work. My favorite classes were all the photography classes. I would also tell people to take screen printing before you graduate because it’s really fun and you can get cool shirts out of it. My favorite memory of high school was seeing my teammates on the track team win state.”
