“I chose Highland because of its IB program. I’ve always wanted to challenge myself and I knew the IB courses would always be the toughest. I’ve been thinking of college since sixth grade. I came to shadow here and I saw how the classes worked and how successful the students were. I wanted to use the fact that I was bilingual as an advantage. All the things I wanted to achieve I knew I could do here.” - Lesly, student at Highland Park Senior.
