Area high school seniors eschew classes in May for a taste of the real world.
By May, most seniors are checked out of high school – at least unofficially. Having ripped open college acceptance (and rejection) letters weeks ago, the pending graduates find little to keep them motivated. Painfully aware of the rampant apathy, teachers are equally eager to see seniors go. Rather than suffer through an uninspiring end to the year, several independent high schools end senior classes in the final weeks before graduation, sending the soon-to-be graduates off campus for a glimpse of the working world.
