There're many types of club; surely you'll fit into one. There's art club where you get to design many objects , draw , etc. Be creative in this club .A similar club to that is Anime club . It's about drawing cartoon like characters and making a story around them. It could be a make believe character or an actual person . Most anime creations are make believe. Another great club is F.I.S.H. This is a club to the help the hungry friends in need. They work with any type of race ,sex , etc. They help everybody that's in need. There's clubs usually just meet once or twice a week . Some clubs travel to places so these clubs take great commitment. However, most clubs relatively just meet once a week in a classroom to discuss events . The most popular club would have to the multi-culture club .This club is picked by many students because everybody could contribute something .

I loved the diversity of the school. That was probably the main reason why I chose to attend there. Another big reason was the number of AP classes offered. I took almost every single AP class Tascosa has and in college, I am classified as a junior by the time I reach the second semester of my freshman year due to the amount of credit hours that I have (and being classified as an upper classmen in college has its perks). I wish that the administration could be more thoughtful and responsive to the student body and I also wish that we had more school spirit than when I was there.
