Our students were asked to think about what it takes for a student to succeed in his or her academic, social, or artistic life at our school, then write three pieces of advice to a hypothetical student coming into our school.
Some of their responses are below.
° Make new friends, get to know people. Be outgoing and keep a good attitude. Socialize
and make friends and study buddies.
° Be prepared and organized
° Bring something to organize your locker
° Listen to your teachers
° Focus on your work because there are many distractions that will happen in your life.
° Do your homework every night right from the beginning, because the way you start will be the way you finish.
° Turn your work in on time
° Behave yourself. Things have changed at CVPA and they’re more strict about the rules.
° Start on your goals as early as you can.
° Take your art seriously; be passionate about your art
° Leave all the immaturity at home; don’t treat high school like a game.
