Ambryn Diener, who was home schooled before attending Lutheran High School, has been heavily involved in both athletics and other extracurriculars. “I am involved in Cross Country, Soccer, Student Council, National Honor Society, Band, Konzertchor, Chamber Choir, Pep Club, and the Spring Musical.” Her energy, she says, comes from the opportunities to be this involved and use her God-given gifts to share with others.
When asked about advice she would give to someone considering Lutheran High School, she said, “DO IT! Lutheran High is a high school that welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds. As a homeschooled student in middle school, I came into Lutheran High not knowing many people, but people welcomed me right away. If you are thinking about attending Lutheran High, I encourage you to get involved in extracurricular activities. These groups within the school will become your second families and will become your peer support system the rest of high school.” If you are not sure she says, “Pray about it. God will lead you where he sees you fit. Before saying no to Lutheran, I recommend taking a tour and shadowing a day during school hours. Students and teachers can also speak confidently and personally from their expereinces at this school.”
“I realized how thankful I was for [those who graduated before me], for their welcoming attitudes toward me. Now that I am a senior, I see it as my job to be the welcomer to newcomers.” And even when there is a lot of homework, “it all comes down to time management and how much effort you are willing to put into school.”
