As the 2019-20 school year comes to a close, The Pacific Times asked NP3 High students:.

“What advice would you give incoming NP3 freshmen about high school?”

Kiara Miller, Freshman
“You have to put more thought and work into everything you do and you have to make sure you turn everything in on time because it all affects your GPA. You will also have new friends and the lunch lines are a lot longer than they were in middle school.”

Chim Unanwa, Junior
“Take college classes over the summer, or at least remember that they are available. Also you should not stress too much as colleges mainly look at your Junior and Senior years. This does not mean that you can slack off, if you do not do well in 9th grade classes, then you are likely to do worse in 10th. You should also retake tests because in my opinion tests are easier the second time. It does not hurt your grade.”

Zara Afridi, Senior
“You should plan ahead in your classes and academics, and to always get involved such as being in clubs or any other extracurricular activities the school offers because it is always good to start early and be more social. Freshman year is always going to be the easiest year, so always try to aim for straight A’s in your classes and try your best. Also don’t worry too much about drama with friends because it is not worth it.”

Selah Zapara, Senior
“It goes fast so enjoy it!”

Akshaj Mehta, Freshman
“I stumbled upon these quotes online one day and I used them throughout my freshman year. ‘By failing to prepare is preparing to fail’ by Benjamin Franklin and ‘The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.’ by H. Jackson Brown”
