(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Seniors only have five weeks of school left and many can hardly contain their excitement.

“I’m so excited for it to be over,” she said.

Abby Oswalt said, “I’m so relieved. It’s been a long time coming.”

“I’m excited to get out of here, excited to start a new chapter. Beyond ready for this change,” said Bianca Berente.

Kara Mathis felt similarly.

“It’s really exciting, but also eye opening because no I have to gain an entirely different kind of responsibility than I’ve had before,” she said. “I’ve done this kind of schooling for 13 years now, so change will be hard but I’m hoping it will also be fun. I’m glad all my hard work is finally going pay off and officially starting my life,” she said.

“I’m ready to leave,” said Lyle Hanner.
