I have never seen a school that has so much class and elegance, than I have this past week with SCA. They have taken the high road, one that many times is less traveled because its easier to play the blame game, than it is to sit back in silence and handle a situation in a private matter. The leadership of this school is proving they are more concerned in educating the students of their school than to be apart of a circus.
Taking the high road is described by the dictionary as: The most positive, diplomatic, or ethical course.The key in taking the high road is to have boundaries and exercise them when necessary. This means in a diplomatic way, I may respond to others or situations that I do not like or agree with and state or exercise my boundaries without being negative or unethical. When I take the high road, no matter how badly or unfairly I feel I have been treated, I feel better about ME which is more important than being the opposite of positive, diplomatic and ethical. You may be surprised, but, the outcomes of taking the high road. Not only do you feel better, but often times an individual or situation will turn around for the better simply because you did not do or say anything to make things worse.
There has been many who have come quick to criticize the school and the decision they have made based on part of the story, from one side. I believe we will never know the whole story of what happened between this young lady and the school, but what we will know is this, that Sonshine Christian Academy did what many have accused them of not doing, and that is turning the other cheek (Matthew 5:39) and taking the high road and continuing to be a school of excellence.
This is why I support Sonshine Christian Academy, for being so classy and taking that high road.
