With Prom coming up Friday, juniors Kahlia Hsieh and Jaylynn Jeter say they are prepared and excited. The theme is “Garden of Glamour” which Hsieh and Jeter both called promising.

“I think it is unique and has a lot of potential to have great floral decorations,” Hsieh said. “None of the other themes really stuck out to me except for this one, so I’m glad they chose this and I’m so excited to see how it turns out.”

Jeter agreed with Hsieh, saying that the theme seems great, but she heard that other schools were having similar themes which she said was unusual. 

“When I first found out what the theme was I absolutely loved it, and I still think it’s good,” Jeter said. “But when I found out what other schools’ themes were, I thought it was funny how they were also a garden theme of a different thing. For example, I saw one high school that was doing “Garden of the Sea,” but I still think ours is better.”

Hsieh said she was excited for Prom, especially before big exams start.

“I’m looking forward to going to prom because I think it will be a fun time to hang out with friends and have fun before AP exams begin,” she said. “I didn’t really start thinking about [prom] until it was time to buy the ticket, but ever since then I’ve been excited.”

While Jeter said she looking forward to the dance,  she knows it likely will not live up to the standards she held as a little kid. 

“It used to be something I looked forward to because I thought high school would be like how it is in the movies and TV shows, but after seeing how high school is, [it’s] definitely not like that, especially at West Shore,” Jeter said. “I don’t think it [will] live up to my standards because people that went last year said it was bad, so I’m not sure what to expect. I just hope the music is good.”

The prom will be held at the Hilton Rialto Place at 7 p.m. Friday
