    Extracurriculars: Their are many extracurricular activates of a wide variety offered at my school. Depending on the teacher over the club, some don't meet regularly and do few things throughout the year.

    Teachers: Most teachers do the minimum they need to do, but are friendly and interested in the students. Other teachers don't understand what they are teaching, and therefore cant teach it to the students. Then there are the teachers who go above and beyond to not only make sure their students understand what is being taught, but to also let the students know that whatever they are going through they are their to help! My school had a variety of each of these teachers.
