The year is coming to an end and that means graduation. Seniors will walk across a stage in front of their family, friends, and peers. They will shake hands with their teachers and be given a diploma. It’s just the start of their adult life, a transition into the adult world,  and some of them are getting a head start by graduating a whole year early. Now graduating high school can be hard at a normal pace but for students graduating a whole year early can be worse. Here at I interviewed two Juniors, who both are graduating with this year’s senior class, for their thoughts on the matter and plans after high school.
