North Pole High School has been a school and quite an experience. The teachers have been amazing and the school has given me opportunities to better myself and to prepare to move on and go to college or learn a trade skill. I've been learning for most my life to come to this moment just a few months away from graduation and getting ready for college. I've been looking at colleges for a few months now and have been working hard to get good grades and now have been applying for scholarships to help with college tuition. After going to college I am hoping to either open a business or become specialized in a certain branch of physical science.
