There are so many clubs at this school! I am in so many its had to keep count! We have a lot of community service clubs at our school which is amazing because we can help out the community and a lot of students get involved in that. Our school is very open about students creating their own club to help with the school and add new fresh ideas to the school! With these clubs the teachers who sponsor them are very involved and help out a lot with the planning that goes into it. The administration will help with anything if it benefits the student body! In student council we having meetings every week with our principal and we will start having meetings every month with our superintendent to help them connect more with the students. I am in chemistry bob, delta tri sigma, mu alpha theta, National honors society, junior civilian, spanish club, show choir, student council, and that is just a few I can name.

There are a few teachers in my school that are amazing! I have had great teachers over the past 4 years I have been t Huntsville high school. But before the start of my 11th grade year most all of my teachers left or retired. This was hard on all of the students because teachers that were amazing had left, and not so good ones where brought in. There are some teachers at my school that are teaching a subject that they have never studied! All of my teachers teach in the lecture style which is not always great to us students. The grading scale is all the same for every single teacher which makes it hard if some students are really bad test takers can't ever catch up with homework or classwork. My entire school system is on computers so the communication is great if the teacher looks at her email and or edmodo.

I have been in my school show choir for four years and loved it! This is such an amazing program to be a part of and it has helped me make friends and become more confident. I have been in my schools student council for the past two years and they has showed me the way the school system runs and how to be a leader. My school has a rival football game every year with a pep rally and we all go to the game and wear white to support our team! I would attend this school again because it is the best high school in the city that I am in. We have gone through many ups and downs but in the end all of the students me included learn a lot and have a lot offered to us that we couldn't get anywhere else.
