    Extracurriculars: There are many extracurricular activities in our school. Teachers will often offer students different clubs to join and even programs to partake in such as scholarships.

    There are many after-school activities for a variety of interests and the teachers are helpful on making the students fit it in. The atmosphere is very welcoming in all activities thanks to the teachers and students.

    Students are very committed to clubs and do very well at organizing themselves and activities.

    Teachers: The teachers are great and are very welcoming. They give up their own time to help every student to be able to do their best Teachers generally make engaging lessons to keep the students interested, and seems like they genuinely care the students.

    The school gives students many opportunities for students to excel. There is a variety of clubs for students to attend to, and as well as different facilities for students to use such as the several computer labs, the library, the gym, the performing arts center, and many more.

    There are just only some teachers that may need to engage with their students a bit more instead of being heavily dependent on online lessons and the text book.

    Overall, the Timber Creek High School provides great education,

    Extracurriculars: The school provides dozens of different clubs that aim to accommodate various interests and groups. The school also has many excellent athletic programs, such as the color guard and marching band. The color guard is nationally known and it's World Class team competes at World Class Championships every year in Dayton, OH and is a finalist team almost every time. This team competes out of the state several times and is known throughout the state for it's performances. However, I would not rate the experience as the best because of the lack of administrative support towards the color guard. The team is ignored, looked down upon, and not given any recognition or respect in terms of financing, facilities, and even with all of its' accomplishments.

    Overall Experience: This school is unique because it has an incredible color guard program that is nationally known as it competes in World Class Championships in Dayton, OH every year and often is one of the finalists. Through this program, I was able to travel to several states to compete, I gained skills that I would not have acquired through a general classroom setting, such as perseverance, strength, and time management. I would choose this school again for this very reason because not every school has a World Class color guard that is nationally competitive and therefore I would not trade that experience for another school.
