On Student Culture & Diversity: I didn't look particularly at the diversity of my school. I befriended who I I befriended. but the diversity is definitely there. The school population is so dense, so heavy, that it is almost guaranteed that you are going to have at least one person who thinks as you do. The population is heavily white true, but minorities are many here. Definitely more than you'd find in the local catholic districts .We are very accepting, from what I saw. But again. I was an outcast. can't attest for being familar with the pervasive culture, becasue I was not part of it.

On Extracurriculars: Becuase it is such a big high school, my high school tries hard to cater to the needs of diverse students through clubs. There are over three cultural clubs including the KoreanAmerican Club, the Bengali Club, the Indian Cultural Club, and the Chinese Cultural Club, and etc. There are many clubs that students could do what interests them. For example, if a student enjoys law, there is the Mock Trial CLub and if a student enjoys engineering, there are three engineering clubs. There are also volunteer clubs such sa Key cluband the Goodwill Ambassadors. In total there are over 15 clubs in the high school. French club, German Club, International Friendship Club, Auto Club, Model Aviation Club, Knights for Life, Rising Knights, African American Club, Thespian Troops, Theatre Club, and etc all help students develope wide interests.
