Many enticing clubs and after school activities were offered when I attended Gaiser Middle School. The activities which were most appealing were NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Applications) and Dance Club. To participate in NJHS you were required to have an acceptable GPA, one of at least a 3.2 or higher. NJHS played a role in preserving the school and picking up trash around the campus and encouraging the student bod to be more active within the community. NJHS also helped steer the school in the direction of becoming one of the nation's "Green Schools" by encouraging the student body to recycle and practice conserving energy. MESA was an engineering and applied science club which focused on issues faced in contemporary society and how to prevent them as well as applied mathematics to create robots in which the members of MESA would compete in. Dance club was perhaps the most commonly joined, and most favorable clubs among the student body. Students who participated in Dance CLub learned contemporary dances as well as the art of Lyrical Dancing and modern Hip Hop dances.

The athletics offered at Gaiser middle school were very important to teachers and staff. The students were especially excited to participate in the sports, and if they did not participate in sports they would partake in attending games and wearing school attire or school colors to show their spirit and support for their team. Seeing fans always made the athletes feel good about competing and playing games against other schools and districts, it made them feel a part of something more than just school. For some students sports made them feel accepted and appreciated when maybe they weren't treated this way at home as many of the students who attended Gaiser middle school had harsh and difficult home lives. The teams were very competitive but also upheld positive attitudes throughout games as well as good sportsmanship.
When I attended this school, bullying situations were sometimes handled lightly, teachers inadvertently neglected to take care of situations between students before they escalated into something more than childsplay. I did not feel safe to voice my own opinions when engaged in class discussions, bullying was rampant and students were catty and harsh and possessed absolutely no regard to the feelings of their peers. The nurse was very helpful and sincerely cared about the wellbeing of the students. Having Type 1 Diabetes, I was nervous to give myself doses of insulin through needles, the nurse would talk me through each session spent with her before lunch. The nurse went out of her way to make sure students were well taken care of while in her care. Security was very avid in the prevention and removal of the use of drugs with adolescents. If at any time a student was suspected of possession of drugs, security would excuse the suspected student from class and escort them to the security office for a backpack check.
