    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of clubs and organizations that students can participate in. If someone has an idea about a new club, teachers are willing to be a mentor for the club. Depending on how important the student feels in the club, the commitment can be very strong. Every student is recommended to participate in clubs, so most students are in clubs.

    Overall Experience: My experience at my school is pretty great, but I mainly think it is because I have been going to my school for quite some time. I have memories with friends and teachers from years before high school. The students are usually very inviting, especially when it comes to new students. Most teachers are welcoming and are happy to be of assistance at all times. Being involved in sports, community service, and activities is a good way to create a better experience at my school.

    Teachers: There are no teachers in my school, to my knowledge, that have not put in personal time into their students. There is a good variety of personalities in the teaching staff that makes my experience of going to school memorable. With such a variety of personalities there is definitely a variety of teaching styles. From that variety students may learn which teaching style if more suitable for them in the future. Although all the teachers in my school are different when it comes to teaching styles, knowledge, and grading, I can personally say that the teachers are pretty involved with students. The general concern with students seems to be a main goal for most faculty in my school.

    Teachers: Some of the teachers get off topic very easily but besides that they enjoy teaching and are very good at it.

    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of groups, but commitment is minimal. I think that if there was more community involvement, the clubs and organizations would excel more. However, some of the groups do excel more than others. Most of this depends solely on the teacher or coordinator in charge.
