What do you think?
Look back on your senior year of high school. What did you do all year? Did you party, cut up, and not pay attention to anything unless it dealt with your after school activities? Or did you listen to the advice your teachers gave you about life and learn a great deal of responsibility? Well I know my senior year of high school was certainly stressful, but it made me into a mature and responsible young woman that I am today. I cut up and skipped class a few times, but that didn’t mean I didn’t learn loads of stuff my senior year. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my senior year. So my question for you is, is senior year a waste of time or is it essential on our road to success?

The teachers just don’t teach the students the curriculum they are supposed to.
However saying that, senior year should not be eliminated, because you learn so many life lessons your senior year. Filling out all the countless number or scholarship packets and turning them in on time, teaches you tons of responsibility. Teachers your senior year of high school don’t genuinely care if you turn stuff in on time, they just overlook if it is late. But if you don’t turn them scholarship packets in on time, you don’t have a chance to obtain that scholarship. It makes you realize that you are really about to be on your own and you will must be accountable for your mistakes and your work.
Although most people argue that senior year is absolutely a waste of time, they should be reminded of how much fun they had their senior year. I mean, yes it teaches you a mass of stuff and it is very stressful, but I don’t think anyone has ever not had a blast their senior year. With going on the senior trip to operation graduation, my senior year was a blast! I got close to so many people in my class that I had barely spoken to all through school, because senior year brings your whole class together. You realize that you probably aren’t ever going to see your classmates again, so you try to do as much as you can throughout that year.
Therefore, in my opinion senior year is not a waste of time. It teaches you so many incredible things and you get close to a collection of amazing people. You went all through high school, seeing all the same teachers as you walked down the hallway, seeing all of the underclassmen and teaching them the important things in life. So to me senior year is the most important year of your high school career. It is a way of passage into the work field or into college. So next time you hear someone bashing senior year just remind them to look back on their senior year and how much it taught them.
