The Interviews to Remember: Incoming Freshmen

Last Saturday the interviews for the next incoming freshmen took place. Many students from the Associated Student Body of St. Genevieve High School and others along with many faculty members arrived at school ready to evaluate the many kids interested in joining this Valiant family.

About nearly a hundred students from different middle schools came and were interviewed. Many were respectful and well-rounded. Compared to years prior back, many were dressed sharp, neat, and very formal. Nonetheless, an outfit and your appearance doesn’t fully or at all sum up what they can offer if accepted into this high school.

“If someone wants to be apart of this Valiant family, they need to show the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, citizenship, and [be] caring. Those qualities are very important here,” mentions Miguel Rodriguez, a representative from the Associated Student Body.

Many teachers and students understand that the kids chosen to attend this school is very critical. They could essentially make or break the school. A title has been put upon this school as ‘A National School of Character’ because those who are here hold great character, as mentioned by Rodriguez. There are certain requirements for one fit to be at this school, and those who fall out of  these standards surely shouldn’t attend this school. Another attribute accepted and admired here is the sense of diversity and uniqueness. Those who are different and open-minded are nonetheless welcomed here.

“In my opinion, I think the staff should do a lot more research on the people who go here. I really think that choosing the right people who go here can stop the vandalism and stealing that has been going on. I would really like to see a lot more racial diversity as well, but then again, it also depends who applies here,” comments junior Shamiha Malik.
