There are quite a few extracurricular activities at our school, most of them being sports. There's football, girls and boys basketball, volleyball, wrestling, track, trap shooting, to name some of them. There's anime club, Spanish club, and math club, as well. Not very many people participate in those. But many students participate in sports.

I like this school because it is very unique. They prepare you for life outside of high school, make sure you're on the right track for graduating and passing all your classes. They make sure you watch your character, because it matters, and they emphasize it very much ( in a program called "Character Counts" for all students and staff).
Overall the experience at Northwood-Kensett was good. Though, I would like to see teachers do more to students who are disruptive during class and think they can get away with whatever they want to.
