    Extracurriculars: There are a ton of oppurtunities to get involved but you certainly have to stay aware to announcements and posters in order to take part in them. There are a lot of diverse clubs and activities although some of them can be unfair at times, overall they are relatively good. There are clubs for all interests and they are very involved in awesome experiences, lessons, and volunteer opurtunities.

    Overall Experience: I'm very glad that I chose to attend this school because of the medical program I took part in. I was able to compete in HOSA throughout my years which expanded my knowledge and awareness to a lot of different fields and events involving medicine. I was also taught a lot of valuable skills through the program, whether it was at clinicals or in class. I earned my CNA certification recentley through this amazing program, allowing me to work in hospital and/or geriatric settings at an age as young as 17 years old!
