There are many different options to choose from with extracurricular activities. At my school, there are at least four fields to choose from when completing these activities. Examples are fine arts or computer/technology pathways. When you choose a pathway, you typically complete all the classes available before moving on to another. As far as clubs, there are so many that started while I was in school. Most of them were started by groups the wanted to have access to clubs that caters to there intrest. Also, the typical sports or music related activities are always available, too.
At my high school, the teachers made it very clear to students that they want to help them achieve success. So, they work very hard creating engaging learning plans for each lesson. All teachers in their respective teaching departments worked together to make lessons, and to ensure all students are relatively on the same track. Most teachers at my high school have very high levels of education, and also know how to communicate with their students well.
I have been enrolled in Clarke central for the past 6 months, as a sophomore. I came to this school from Britain. All of the teachers and (most of) are friendly people, so I had plenty of help settling in. My grades have gotten higher, I've improved my communication skills and am having fun participating in unique club activities. It would be nice if they improved the food quality though. :-)
