    Extracurriculars: Our extracurricular activities offer what's best for students. They are open to any ideas and thoughts that could help or improve the club AND students in the most effective way possible. Also, they make sure that each and every student is having a good time doing what they love. Types of extracurricular activities may include Film Club, Anime Club, Key Club, Science Club, and more.

    Overall Experience: My school is like a fun daycare. Our staff not only makes sure that every student works hard and tries their best in every extracurricular, but makes sure we do it in the most fun way possible to reduce stress. I am happy that my classes are filled with students who share the same amount of fascination and motivation as me when it comes to learning new things. I am grateful that I am able to experience my four years with teachers, staff, and other adolescents, for I have grown a strong bond with them. What makes my school unique is how there is always something that correlates with a student's passion (ex. students who loved drawing typically sign up for AP art design or Anime club).
