"Empowered to Shape the Future"
Here at Clairbourn, I have learned so many things that I will use for years to come in my future education, career and social interactions. If I have any advice for the younger students, and especially those entering Middle School, it would be this -- pay attention to your life at Clairbourn and appreciate every moment, because they will be some of the best moments of your life, and they go by incredibly fast.
I am happy to report I will be going to Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy next year, and I feel confident that Clairbourn has given me the skills not only to succeed, but to really thrive in high school. I will take with me all of the spectacular memories I have made with my friends and teachers, the great code of ethics that we have learned for years, the confidence my teachers have given me, and the friends that I will have for the rest of my life. In the words of Barack Obama, “We did not come to fear the future. We came here to shape it.” The Clairbourn class of 2017 is not fearful of our future, because we have been prepared and empowered to shape it.
