Paul’s Answer

The senior year of high school is important and you should not slack off. When you receive your acceptance letter from college, it will state that your enrollment into the school is contingent upon them receiving your final transcript from high school. If you should get poor grades or take classes that they feel are not challenging, they could rescind their offer. Therefore, regardless of what others are doing, it is in your best interest to continue to work hard and take challenging courses.


In addition, those courses which may be more challenging may help you do well in your college classes if they expose you to things you'll see later on.   Last, no matter what you do, make sure you graduate with enough credits.

Gopi’s Answer

By Senior year first semester, you would have had an acceptance from colleges and there is a tendency to slack of the next semester but it is important that you finish up with decent grades as colleges will look for it. Typically you would take less classes in the senior year that will help you graduate.

Patricia’s Answer

Very. Getting in to some colleges is difficult. College is difficult if you make the most of it and challenge yourself. If you are not planning to go to college, I'd make the most of your last year of "free" education depending on where you live. If you were hoping for an answer of, "not very important", you should consider working with your guidance counselor to get more focused on career goals and what you can do every week to get where you want to be. Honestly...I wish I did more in high school...I speak from experience. Good luck!
