UCSD Student of the Week: Senior Class 2016

Monday, October 05 2015

The Principal's pick for Student of the Week for September 14-18 are the Senior Class of 2016 for the following reasons:

The entire senior class is off to an amazing start to the school year. They have taken it upon themselves to be active leaders in the school both academically as well as in a manner to promote a positive school culture. The maturity and determination that the entire group has shown to begin the school year is admirable. I am certain that with continued focus this will be one of the best senior classes UCSD has ever seen. Keep up the good work and remember to keep focused on your goals throughout the year.
~Mr. Wilson, Principal
