One year, 12 students

High school: a place where wary faces turn into confident ones, quiet kids end up roaring and everyone inches one year closer towards their inevitable future. All around MVHS, every student — from the kid under the staircase to the beloved class officer — has unique dreams for the year to come.

This year, we asked 12 students to share some of their biggest hopes for the upcoming year — both academically and personally — and their current state of happiness. In May, we’ll check back with them and see how far they’ve come and how they’ve changed.
