I am currently an 8th grader. We have a wide variety of sports and clubs for everyone. Some examples for sports are swimmimg, diving(since we have two pools in our school), football, soccer, track, golf, tennis, cheerleading, dazzlers, wrestling, cross country, basketball, and volleyball. For clubs we have chess, science olympiad, spelling, and many more. I also advise if you are going to be a new student going into the 8th grade to contact the school a year earlier in the case that you want to go to the eighth grade Washington D.C. field trip or else you can't go. Bullying is strongly delt with here. Especially if you talk to the principals. Classes can be challenging if you are in the gifted and talented program but they are easy if you apply yourself and study. Apart from the obvious subjects of Math, Science, English, and History you have the object to take Orchestra, Choir, Band, Handbells, Business Tech, Office assistant, Teacher assistant, Library assistant, Media and Core. Also alternating days between Health and PE and once a week for 18 weeks we swim. There are cliques, but you just have to find people who are your true friends and you'll love it here. Hope this helped.
