There are many different options to choose from with extracurricular activities. At my school, there are at least four fields to choose from when completing these activities. Examples are fine arts or computer/technology pathways. When you choose a pathway, you typically complete all the classes available before moving on to another. As far as clubs, there are so many that started while I was in school. Most of them were started by groups the wanted to have access to clubs that caters to there intrest. Also, the typical sports or music related activities are always available, too.

The school has a lot to do with my experience. It may not be perfect nor the best. However, I believe you should make the most out of what is given to you. I love the environment (not all the time, but most of the time). I love the diversity. I love the determination to prosper within most students!

My school encourages athletic involvement, and sports management. Sports at Clarke Central is very competitive and prideful. Our biggest student section is for basketball and football, especially home games. I play varsity volleyball and the student section has grown over my four years of playing. We also have weight training, aerobic dance, and lifetime sports classes that anyone can take during school. This is where people who do not play sports for the school can experience playing football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, etc.
