At Axtell High School, there are very few clubs and/or organizations. The only organizations we have are PALS, which are high school students who help elementary kids or just act as a friend and National Honor Society, which is only available to students with a high grade point average. Axtell also has FCA which is a 30 minute time period every Friday morning for any student who wants to join in worship. This is a great idea, but who wants to come that early in the morning to do that? I think that we should have an optional worship class. I think that Axtell needs more clubs with a wide variety of selections. Axtell is a diverse community with people that have all different kinds of interests. We need art clubs for people who are interested in art, reading clubs for people who are interested in reading, and maybe even a health career club for people interested in a health career like me.

My overall experience at Axtell High School so for has been phenomenal. The teachers and staffs main focus is the educational growth in every student, the student body is abundant with the most loving and intellectually gifted young men and women in the state of Texas and the athletics program is beyond any "average" standard for any small school. One of my favorite experiences is working with the community in Axtell and witnessing the shear dedication and enthusiasm both the students and the public share alike. Axtell is a unique school due to the fact it is so intertwined with the community that the school its self feels like one giant family. I would most definitely choose this astounding school if I were to do my whole high school experience once again.
I have had a great experience at Axtell high school up until about the 10th grade. Teachers became tougher and rules became stricter. I feel like the staff didn't care as much to connect with the students. I believe our English department has some of the most hard-working teachers of all because none of them are taught by coaches. I feel as though it is hard to grow here on your own because everybody knows everybody. I think Axtell is unique because it is one of the smallest schools in Waco, requiring us to work harder at everything we participate in, extra-curricularly and academically. If I had the chance to, I would probably have chosen a little bit bigger of a school with more opportunities.
