Straight A seniors

The Jan.-Feb. 2018 Star featured all the freshmen, sophomores and juniors who earned straight As in the first semester. Star reporters will be adding photos and interviews of the seniors on this page in the next few weeks. Please check back soon. Pictured on the right are straight A seniors in the journalism class Rosalinda Diaz, Aja Williams and Emily Gonzales.


“I feel accomplished getting good grades for the whole semester. I also feel happy about my success because I know that the hard work paid off. My favorite teacher is Mr. P. [Abel Pereyra] because he explains his concepts thoroughly so that they are easy to understand.” Emily Salgado (Interview by Eli Patino)


“I just really want to make my mom proud because I’m a senior, so time is running out for me. I got straight As by staying focused and knowing that the school life and my social life are separate.” A’shanti Davis (Interview by Chiya Loyd)

“My family motivates me to have straight As, and my boyfriend motivates me to be on top of my work. Having straight As make me feel proud of myself. I want to be successful in life; that’s why I’m always trying my best to get good grades.” Emily Gonzales (Interview by Katherinne Garcia)


“My motivation is getting my work done so I don’t have to worry. My advice would be to get rid of distractions like cell phones. The main ways to maintain good grades are studying and doing the work on time without procrastinating.” Miguel Viruet (Interview by Stephanie Pravinchandra)
