As we all know, North Atlanta High School prepares students for college and career, but some students take it a step further, getting jobs during their time at the iconic eleven stories. Reasons for getting a job differs from student to student, whether  forced by parents or wanting a few extra bucks to hold onto. Places that students work are also across the board.

As if going to school for seven hours a day is not enough for our wonderful Warriors, many go straight from school to work, pushing their homework schedule back a few hours until they get let off. On the other hand, some students choose to work primarily on weekends, in order to separate school from work to their best ability.  “I work for a construction company, but just on the weekends. It’s great because the long hours mean I make more than I would have during the school week, the only downside being that it is extremely hot. Always.” says junior Bradley Nava. 

For some students, working at places often visited by North Atlanta students can get awkward. On the other hand, it can be fun seeing some unexpected guests after school hours to brighten the mood of a long days work. This goes for establishments such as Menchies, Chick-Fil-A, and Sweet Charlie’s ice cream. “When there aren’t a lot of customers seeing friends makes my day a lot sweeter. We grab some ice cream and chill out! ” says Trevor Mosely. 

But don’t think that the perks of having a job stop at the salary or learning responsibility and time management skills for our students. A resounding benefit of having a job according to the students interviewed, free/discounted goodies! Whether it be free milkshakes at Chick-fil-A or 30 % off at Mountain High, low cost goods are a key for working warriors. At Mountain High, workers can get up to 70 percent off at brands like the North Face, Yeti, and Patigonia using their pro-deal. “I got a bunch of bathing suits on sale so pretty much five days out of the week I’m wearing bathing suit bottoms instead of shorts, ” says junior Viren Aluri. 

With the workload and difficulties it takes to be successful at North Atlanta, and the challenges that come with working in high school, we should all be nothing less than extremely impressed by our working classmates.The warriors are never anything less than exceptional, and this is no exception. In the end, the working warriors show an impressive side of NAHS students, juggling loads of homework and working long hours.
