Four years is a long time to work toward your dreams and your future. But the El Segundo High School (ESHS) graduating seniors have done just that.

From 9th grade English to 12th grade Economics, these students have persisted each term, moving closer and closer to life after ESHS.

The graduating seniors are an impressive group, who will represent ESHS at colleges across the nation in the fall. Thanks to Senior Susana Kalish, who is heading to UC Davis, for putting together a Facebook page that allowed all of the seniors to share their intended destinations.
