"Sense of Happiness & Belonging"
I've only been at Clairbourn for a short time, but in those two years, I've made a bundle of great memories. To me, it’s more than just a school, it’s a community and family. This school has a certain feeling to it that no other school has. It's a feeling of happiness, safety, and a sense of belonging, which are three things needed to make a great school. Coming here made an impact on me as a student and individual. It helped me become more focused, mature, and overall better person.
Trying to adjust as fast as possible to middle school as the new kid wasn't easy for me. I had to get used to the teaching and how they did things. I was confused with almost everything that was going on and I was truly having a hard time. I felt I had to prove that I was a great student, person, athlete, and a friend all in the same year.
But, since Clairbourn is always there to pick you up when you fall, I quickly recovered, and it did not take very long for my peers to realize who I am as a person and make friends. Knowing that you have everyone on your side is a booster.
Clairbourn showed me the ins-and-outs of life, how to mature from challenges you face, and how to overcome them. Being here I realized that you have to imagine and dream as far as possible because anything is possible at Clairbourn.
