Our school has many great clubs such as Key Club, Robotics, Drama Club, Beta club, SGA, First Priority, FBLA, sports, and band. The only issues our school has with clubs is that not many students are involved, although the students that do participate are very involved. This year to try to increase club participation we had a day for club officers to talk about their club and why students should join. Another problem we run into with clubs is members come up with great ideas but not of our clubs receive funds so in order to do anything the club must raise its own money. This prevents our clubs from accomplishing all the things they could if they had outside funds.
I attend a school in a small community allowing us to get to know our classmates well. This allows students to study in an environment where they feel safe and comfortable. It also means that are school is very involved with the community; when something bad happens to somebody or there is a natural disaster in our community some organization in our school is there ready to lend a helping hand. Attending a small school like mine has taught me the meaning of helping people and lending a helping hand when needed.
Since my school is in a small community feeliing unsafe is not as common as in a large city. Bullying is not really a problem at my school since almost all the students are close to one another and stick up for each other. Although we do not have a security guard at our school we have doors that can only be opened by ringing a bell so that administrators can see who is about to enter before they allow them to come in. We have a wonderful school nurse who is well trained and ready to help if someone is ill or gets injured. I am completely satisfied with health and safety in my school.
