Shedding light on student trends and culture at the high school.
Summer is a time for relaxation, a time for students who spend 10 months of the school year stuck inside with homework and projects to finally get some rest. But for a few students, the summer held different, more active plans. Summer pre-college programs are common in high schools, drawing interest from a couple of students each year.There are many different reasons why students are drawn by these programs across the country. For senior Elbek Abasov, who participated in the NYU Pre-college program in New York City, the interest in the program began early. “I really wanted to start getting a feel for college and split away from the whole high school feeling and start doing my own thing,” Elbek said.
