Theater, Latin, Band, FCA, Leadership, Yearbook, Agriculture, etc. If you can think of it, it is probably a club, or can become one with a bit of work. The picture day for the yearbook for the clubs takes all day! Many have regular meetings and some compete often. Some clubs branch off from academic classes for those who want more involvement in the subject. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved.

This school is most definitey a good school in comparison to others in the state and even surrounding states. There are lots of opportunities for increased academics and club/sport activities which I have forsthabd seen being improved upon during my years at the school. Focus is shifting more towards academics and college readiness, yet there is a small portion of the faculty, both teachers and administration alike, which focus too solely on sports for my liking. I have nothing against sports until it gets into the way of academics, and it is getting in the way a small bit.

The traditions the school contains are endless. Of course, special perks for seniors are available such as late arrival or early dismissal, the ability to stand on the fence (the very front) for home football games, the names on the back of the black shirts every senior chooses to wear, the winning of the color war Olymipcs among the classes (I.e. Sophomores and Seniors), and the ability to dance the night away at prom. it is a mutual understand that seniors win because it is their final year at the school. Also, the age of the school really emphasizes tradition. It is one of the earlier a built schools within the district, but like majority of life, new improvements are constantly being applied to the school and student body. The school, faculty, and fellow peers have really made my high school career a memorable one, from winning the 2014-2015 state soccer championship to witnessing the senior boys dress up in their short jean shorts in the persistent downfall of rain at the homecoming game against Henry County. This is truly an experience I will never forget.
