Inspire to be Greater

Joining Inspire as a new student
Inspire+to+be+Greater

Hey! I’m Samuel Lore, I’m a new student coming to Inspire as a Junior. Typically when you go to a high school you stay with that high school for four years, so you grow up with the people that go to said high school. Starting a new school with people I’ve never met before is rough, especially so late into my high school career, but you guys are definitely making it so much easier for me. I’ve already met a great group of friends within two days of being here and I feel like people here don’t judge me! It’s a nice feeling and I know a lot of students here – new and old – feel the exact same way.

There’s a lot of things that stand out to me about Inspire, for one the community is really accepting and kind. I’ve met some really creative people, which is to be expected from an art heavy school, but this school allows for people to explore their own passions rather than forcing them to follow a set of instructions. I’ve noticed that students at Inspire make things happen, with the clubs primarily being run by students. Students also run many of the fundraisers as well as set up the rallies, oftentimes taking that creativity to try to make these events all the more enjoyable for us. And these are all hosted during school hours, it doesn’t even begin to showcase how many events are held outside of school hours – I met a lot of friendly people at the carwash that ASB hosted, as well as the New to Inspire Tea Party!

Starting a new school is stressful enough as is, but I believe that Inspire students help out immensely. For a small community it’s full of amazing people that are willing to help new students any way they can. I’ve really enjoyed it here and I can’t wait to see what else this school year has in store.
