Senior: Chatham High School not only offers one of the best academic curriculums in New Jersey, but also offers activities for everyone. From sports teams, clubs, organizations, and performing arts, there is a place for everyone to feel accepted. There is seemingly a place for everyone, but each group tend to become very exclusive which creates cliques. This is common among young people this age, but there are steps our community can take to diffuse this issue. I would like to see more collaboration between all different types of students outside the classroom.
One annual event that helps with this is Challenge Day. About 200 students are selected each year to break into groups among peers of freshman to seniors to share their highs and lows, allowing them to feel like they aren't alone and to understand to not judge everyone by their outward appearance. More events like this may help diffuse the divide between groups and create a more accepting and inviting community.
