West Oso Seniors Get a Taste of Life After High School

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Graduation day is just around the corner for high school seniors in the Coastal Bend, and more than 100 West Oso seniors got a taste of the real world on Tuesday.

It was all part of a program designed for seniors to see what life is like once they get out of high school. The students were put through various simulations, such as trying to locate and secure housing and a job. They also had to set up a bank account.

The idea is to get the kids prepared for life after high school.

Once the students completed the exercise simulation, administrators rang a bell signifying another graduate. All of the students said they got a lot out of the program.
