The reason behind the increase of high school seniors’ lackadaisical personas: “senioritis.” Perhaps you are familiar with this phenomenon.

Merriam-Webster defines senioritis as “an ebbing of motivation and effort by school seniors as evidenced by tardiness, absences, and lower grades.”

With graduation just around the corner, most seniors are completely consumed by feelings of laziness and lethargy. We feel as if we no longer have to work hard to maintain our grades we’ve been working so hard for all these years, since we’ve finally received our acceptance letters.

For example: Normally, I would interview a teacher here.  But I didn’t…because (you guessed it).

BHS senior Samantha Pilarte said her senioritis entails, “not wanting to do any work because we’re graduating soon, and the only way [she] wouldn’t be able to graduate is if [she] absences out.”

Samantha’s only motivation for coming to school is to maintain her attendance so she can graduate.

We 12th grade students lack interest in our classwork considering most of us are committed to college by the 3rd quarter of the school year.

Editor’s note: This story was incomplete. We wonder why.
