There are so many different clubs and organizations! Ranging from sports, theatre, deca, gay pride club. There are so many! The clubs are open for anyone to join and are the majority of the time $5 or less to join. It's a very fun thing to have and there are clubs you wouldn't even know someone would have. People have fun and they attend. I think it's a great thing to have because so many people make new friends with people who share the same interests as them. What makes it even better is the students are in charge so they get to plan these activities of their clubs and learn leadership and teamwork skills.
We always have a police officer at our school, he's part of the staff. But how is he going to know if something is happening when he's in his office and there are people fighting in the courtyard? We also have staff members, but I'm not sure they are always alert to what's going on. The other day I was eating lunch and I turned around and there were two kids fighting, it took a couple of minutes before anyone came and stopped it. And they didn't even take the kids to the principals office. Come to find out later, one of the kids didn't even go to our school. It's ridiculous! Our nurse, well I know we have one but she is also a nurse for other schools so she's never at our school so if someone got hurt they'd just have to buck up or go to the hospital, because she isn't there. Hopefully our teachers and principals know what to do
Personally I like the school. There is a lot of freedom in terms of off campus lunches and class choosing. Most of the teachers are really nice and the diversity of students is great. A large downside to this school however is that the hallways are very crowded in between classes and it is hard to get to class in a timely manner. I would also like to see more college help and awareness. Don't get me wrong, they staff tries really hard to push students to apply and go to college, but not many people show up to the college nights they hold and unless you are a part of the AVID program there isn't a big push for applying and touring various universities.Unfortunately Hunter High has kind of a bad reputation but after being there for 3 years I can honestly say the reputation is unjustified and it is a good school overall.
