    Extracurriculars: How coordinated your club is completely depends on the teacher who sponsors it and the students running it. If the teacher sponsoring lacks enthusiasm, the club is sometimes lackluster as well. My French Club has an extremely enthusiastic teacher running it, who has a love for France and it's culture, and makes the entire club a fun place to be.

    Educational Outcomes: I still know nothing about the technicalities of the "real world": how to pay bills, how to do my taxes, etc. I feel that my teachers gave good advice about college, however.
