There are so many different clubs and organizations! Ranging from sports, theatre, deca, gay pride club. There are so many! The clubs are open for anyone to join and are the majority of the time $5 or less to join. It's a very fun thing to have and there are clubs you wouldn't even know someone would have. People have fun and they attend. I think it's a great thing to have because so many people make new friends with people who share the same interests as them. What makes it even better is the students are in charge so they get to plan these activities of their clubs and learn leadership and teamwork skills.

We always have a police officer at our school, he's part of the staff. But how is he going to know if something is happening when he's in his office and there are people fighting in the courtyard? We also have staff members, but I'm not sure they are always alert to what's going on. The other day I was eating lunch and I turned around and there were two kids fighting, it took a couple of minutes before anyone came and stopped it. And they didn't even take the kids to the principals office. Come to find out later, one of the kids didn't even go to our school. It's ridiculous! Our nurse, well I know we have one but she is also a nurse for other schools so she's never at our school so if someone got hurt they'd just have to buck up or go to the hospital, because she isn't there. Hopefully our teachers and principals know what to do

Extracurriculars at Hunter high school, seem very dull at times. At our school the teams, or clubs that have the most focus are drill,football,basketball, the rest are just kind of set aside. My long life dream has been to become a news reporter and i have thought of making a new club at our school that involves a fun news team, and we can invovle the students who are great with computers and editing, and can show their skills in that club. I have so much ideas on this club, but its just that our school wouldnt have all the money to fund it that is a big deal here at hunter money. We are located on the westside, where we are known as the lower school, but i want us to be more than that, we have such talented students, and have so much potential we are capable of bigger things!
