I come to school because I want to provide a good start for my children, and I can only do that by maintaining a paying job that will provide everything that they would need. The way I get a good job is by finishing high school and getting into a good college, so I will be a top contender for when I enter the job market. - Benigno, 12th grader

I go to school for many reasons. First, my parents didn't go to college, so I'm trying to prove to people who don't believe I could do it that I will graduate. I am also doing it because I need a better education if I ever want to get a job that will support my future family. - Miguel, 11th grader

Aubrey Marie Troutman, my 3-month-old daughter, is the reason I come to school. I’m trying to be her motivation. I don’t want her to have a reason not to finish school or have a reason to say “But you didn’t go to school, so why do I have to go to school...” I want her to know that when you finish school you can get much further in life and have more opportunities in life. If I finish school for her, she’ll have a reason to want to finish school. - Diana, 12th grader

I go to school because I want to be something in life. I go to school because I can’t get anywhere without knowledge. Also, once you receive your education you can’t get that taken away. I go to school because I don’t have a choice and my parents make me. I want to have enough knowledge so I can have a job and money. Lastly, my school is my social life. - Jonnese, 9th grader

School has become a genuine priority in my life because it is what helps me cope with my emotions and hold on to my sanity. After being repeatedly sexually assualted during my childhood and teenage years, I was depressed with numerous self-esteem issues. School is what I excel in. It gives me confidence and keeps my morale about life high. School gives me hope that my life will be better and that success is within my grasp. - Shelby, 11th grader
