    Extracurriculars: More students here are into their extracurrics more than their academics. Students are so into sports here that coaches use their players grades to decide how they're treated in training. You can be kicked off the team if your grades aren't up to par. Clubs are very hard to find however. The most popular clubs are extremely selective and some secretly use favoritism. Some clubs seem to be lost in the system and others just aren't paged attention too because of the people that are in them. Some clubs also represent different organizations that help to feed the poor and give others an education. Overall, club activities and preferences vary.

    Overall Experience: So far, my experience at this school has been ok. I enjoy the roses in the thorns. I love the fact that bad apples don't spoil the whole bunch. Despite my anxiety, there's always one or two people I can count on to feel ok around. I can also always rely on one or two teachers to help me find my way around life, and hard work is always rewarded at the end of each term. I have never gotten so many awards for being "smart" in my entire life. I received my first medal ever for just doing good in school. I would choose this school again if I had the chance because, the good things and people here are actually great and amazing. The diamonds in the rough make it all worth it.
