BLR-ing the Lines Between Social Groups at ASIJ

Social groups are undeniably one of the most influential aspects of our high school experience. Factors such as academic interests, extracurricular activities, cultural background, age, and gender can determine the people we spend time with, the activities we do in our free time, the places we hang out, the groups we belong to… and those we don’t.

As much as we enjoy this feeling of “belonging” to a group, there undeniably are also aspects to the rigid social groups that prevent us from surprisingly wholesome relationships. New students often talk about the hostile and clique-y environment they experience as new kids, or the rigid social structure that seems slow to change.

Let’s take a deeper look into this issue, through an opinion article, podcast, and student advice piece
