“If you’re going to be a freshman at La Quinta High School, make sure you work hard and take advantage of IB classes because they’re very good for college.”
Camille Wilson
“My advice for the freshmen out there is to not worry about school that much ‘cause, honestly, you have a lot of other things to worry about. Like don’t make it your [only] priority. I think other things are also important, like having really good experiences with your friends. I feel like making good, important experiences in high school is really important so you could look back and be like ‘Wow, that was a great time of my life,’ you know? Also, it’s really important to take care of yourself and your skin and your hair, and mental health is very important [as well.]”
Alexis Wells
“As a senior, what I’ve learned from Freshman year is that your grades do matter. and I was told ‘It’s not gonna be that hard, it doesn’t matter, you still have three years,’ but they do matter. Don’t slack off, because that’s what I did, and it took awhile for me to get back on track. It’s just really important all four years, no matter what anyone says.”
Renaissance Alexandre
“High school isn’t as scary as you think it is coming into it from middle school. The sooner you realize that your peers also don’t really know what’s going on, the calmer things seem to get. Teachers really are there to help you when you need it, and taking just 10 minutes after school or at lunch to ask a question can really go a long way. In terms of high school habits I would say, BUY A PLANNER. Try to turn in as many things on time and miss as few assignments as possible.”

“Don’t slack it. Take advantages of your resources here at La Quinta High School before it’s too late.”
Halle Wells
“Always make sure to have fun, but put school work before your fun. You’ll regret it when you’re a senior and you failed a couple classes your freshman or sophomore year, and you can’t change that. I know you’re young, but it’s still really stupid to do that; just put your school work and academic work before your fun, but make sure to hang out with your friends, and go to football games and participate. Participate in school activities- join clubs, go to the dances, do all of that, because you’ll regret it when you’re a senior and when you’re about to leave you’ll be like, ‘Why didn’t I have more fun?”
