The clubs we have at Lamar Academy (Options, school of choice) are great, the staff and students are very involved. On whatever clubs our students want to create, we always have support form teachers, counselor, principle, and most of the students who arent in the any clubs. In my opinion the clubs we have in school are great and are a good way for our students to interact and do more for themselves, the people around them, and the community.

The lunch food isn't all that great, I mean its not complainable, But better than nothing at all.
The fact that you can graduate early and catch up is great, i can honestly say this school is better than my old high school.
