Ten Standout Seniors

Our annual head nod to a sample of soon-to-be graduates highlights a wall-climbing web developer, a future Latina community dentist and a gravity-defying computer scientist.

The class of 2013 is ready to Rock the world. Here are a few of our remarkable seniors who have made beautiful music, climbed to new heights, pioneered technology-driven journalism and sought common ground on climate change. Find out what these senior standouts are all about.

Interviews by Kelsey Galles (J14), Stephanie Haines (J15), Clarke Humphrey (J14), Amanda Oppold (J14), Jeremy Woo (J15) and Alan Yu (J13, GJ13).
