On Sports & Fitness: In my school there are a lot of opportunities to be involved. In fact, 20 possible club choices, a variety of sports, and organizations are available to all who would like. This allows every student to have to opportunity to be involved in the school, make positive improvements, and allows each individual to grow with friends and teachers who care.
