EPHS’ Cutest Couples

EPHS Cutest Couples
This graph represents the percentages of the various grades that voted on the google form. In total, I recieved 197 votes from the entire school.

High school is where firsts happen for many students. Some of these firsts are: first crush, first love, first boyfriend/girlfriend, and first kiss. Since Valentine’s Day is the day of love and we see people celebrating with their significant other, I sent out a survey to Elmwood Park High School Students by grade to see who they thought is the cutest couple or friendship. Lets see the results below! DISCLAIMER: This is just for fun! Everyone included in this article agreed to be featured.
