Many seniors are looking forward to graduating from Scarsdale High School.
Senior Michael Lu is most looking forward to graduation as “a rite of passage,” he said. “It's the culmination of our high school and the Scarsdale experience, so I think it's nice to have it as closure and a testament to our achievements."
“Graduation is also an experience that the entire senior class gets to share," Lu said, "and I'm sure we will remember it for the rest of our lives.”
