My experience at Tascosa High School was an OK experience. I typically enjoyed High school, but not necessarily the discipline. Girls are constantly getting checked for dress codes, but the cheerleaders get to wear short skirts that show their butt? I was not trying to wear skirts that showed my butt, I was trying to wear shorts that covered my butt or a pair of jeans with one little hole above the knee. Discipline is not consistent between the avverage joe's and little miss populars.
Review Tascosa High School
There're many types of club; surely you'll fit into one. There's art club where you get to design many objects , draw , etc. Be creative in this club .A similar club to that is Anime club . It's about drawing cartoon like characters and making a story around them. It could be a make believe character or an actual person . Most anime creations are make believe. Another great club is F.I.S.H. This is a club to the help the hungry friends in need. They work with any type of race ,sex , etc. They help everybody that's in need. There's clubs usually just meet once or twice a week . Some clubs travel to places so these clubs take great commitment. However, most clubs relatively just meet once a week in a classroom to discuss events . The most popular club would have to the multi-culture club .This club is picked by many students because everybody could contribute something .
Our school win the award for best involving or volunteering in fishclub. We have vey excellent clubs. The level are very high meaning that so many people involve in. We have key club, student council, national honor society, French honor society, Spanish club , art club and many more and they're all successful!
