At Portville High School we have a huge variety of extracurricular activities. Right now, just some of the clubs and organizations are Art Society, Web Club, Donate Life, Drama Club, Trap Club, and Climb to the Top, and Film.

I participated in Art Society which I enjoyed because during the school day, I have no time in my schedule to have an art class. This gives me time to do some art, enjoy my time, and eat snacks.

I am also a part of the Donate Life Club, this is very fun, well even learning how to save someone's life. We have campaign week, to show our community what we've been learning and get to meet people from the schools around us!

Film is another club I'm participating in, this is where we get to do the announcements everyday, and go out and film events outside of school.

At Portville, we just got a new lunch lady! The lunches are ten times better than ever before! We now have a salad bar, so we can make our own and put whatever we want on them. We also have a lot of choices, like a variety of drinks, fruit, and the actual meal that were getting. I think it's a cool idea to have an International Tuesday and get different foods to try. My favorite part is the deserts and the soups that are made. Although the prices are kind of high, the food is way better than any other year.
The teachers at Portville High School mostly very friendly, outgoing and very helpful. Most of the teachers I have now, understand where students are coming from. They do everything that they can to help a student with any problem they have. The teachers here don't just teach us, but they make the whole experience fun!
