The week leading up to the end of the quarter is stress-inducing for all Ojai Valley School students. In order to accurately evaluate each student, teachers are assigning copious amounts of homework, including big projects with a high point value to assemble a final (quarter) grade.
Every class seems to have at least one test this week, often worth even more points than usual. This week feels like a year, going on and on, but soon to be over!
Students seem to be dragging around campus as a result of late night studying and cramming to finish projects. Getting a good third quarter grade is often important, since slacking can sometimes happen at the end of the year. Therefore, this final push is what brings everybody to the last quarter, and then the end of the school year.
With that in mind, the quarter end is highly anticipated – everyone just has to make it through this week first!
