There will be a lot of new faces in the Lancaster County school district this year, including several new principals. One of those new principals is at Indian Land Middle School.
Christopher Thorpe was an assistant principal in the district for almost a decade. His motto is "How did you change the world today?" He says it's that mentality he and his staff have developed over the summer to have a successful school year.
"We're going to change the world. There's two things that I told my staff that we're going to do better than anybody else in the world and that's how we treat people and instruction. No one is going to do it better than Indian Land Middle School. I'm excited. The staff is great people. They welcomed me with open arms. I'm truly looking forward to what we can do to make our students successful," said Thorpe.
There will also be changes to Lancaster County next year. A new elementary school will help alleviate the overcrowding at Indian Land Elementary which currently sits at around 1,500 students.
