Clairbourn provided a solid foundation for me and gave the confidence that I have today to question and speak up without the fear that I’m wrong. My teachers also greatly influenced my moral values without me even knowing it. I know how to share and collaborate, listen to others, and still speak up for myself. All the teachers take such good care of you. I’m so thankful to have had Clairbourn.
