At first it was hard and I struggled with school work then I spoke up and asked for help them everything started going for me . I took extra classes one on one time and even got envolved in extra activities that would provide me with credits.
There was a after school drama club that offered 6 extra credits . And you got to travel with the drama club to different schools and theaters to perform . They become more then jss a drama club its like your second family
