    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities at this school provide opportunities to travel and meet new people, the most fun to me is cheerleading because they promote school spirit.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience so far is okay, we have our good days where everyone gets along such as pep rallies and dances. I would do it all over again but, with my principal I had my 9th grade year because he was my elementary school principal as well. My school has had a new principal every year of my high school years and after the first year, the school hasn't been the same.
