SHS Class of 2024 graduate Natalia Feliz discusses what high school was like that last four years.


The class of 2024 has been through a lot, to say the least. Most began high school remotely because of the pandemic. Then came the next four years filled with social isolation, the rapid rise of new technologies, political divisions and protests.

As Massachusetts seniors walk across the stage this month, we sat down with three graduates to ask them to reflect on their high school experience.

Radio Boston spoke to Jelani Tah, who graduated from Malden High School; Marcelyn Tavares, who graduated from City on a Hill Charter Public School; and Natalia Feliz, who graduated from Salem High School.
