Twelfth-grader at Highland High School

What do you like about school?

Briana says she likes how inclusive Highland High School is. “So much support from students and teachers makes you want to attend school.” Clubs and extracurricular activities also help students develop many life skills - leadership, critical thinking, and problem-solving. 

Favorite class?

Briana’s favorite class is Bilingual Economy/Government with Mrs. Melero. She is learning how the economy and government work, which will be helpful outside of school.

Activities and hobbies: 

Being an active member of MECHA and FCCLA and the fun activities that help the community are some of her favorite activities. Briana likes playing soccer and volleyball with her friends and drawing as a great way to express herself.

Plans for the future: 

“My plan is to attend college and go into pre-med. I want to go into the medical field because I know that I’ll be able to make a difference in my community.” With her bilingual skills and passion, there is no doubt she can.
