Building a Foundation
Students will build a foundation in ninth grade, develop habits of “head, heart, and hands” that will, in great measure, contribute to and influence their success over the next four years. It may not happen overnight; students may find their academic stride as the year goes by. Students will use this first year at LWHS to explore the curriculum, to get to know themselves better as learners, to discover what most engages their interest and enthusiasm and sharpen the skills that will ensure a meaningful four years.
That’s a tall order, but students won’t need much help from the College Counseling Department to get off to a great start. Stay focused on the here and now—"life at Lick." It’s the best way for students to get the most from their high school years, and to become the most compelling college applicant they can be. College counselors will stay in touch, but from a respectful distance for the time being.
Again, welcome, and best wishes for a terrific high school journey!
