Seaholm is great, but it's important to take classes you want to take and get involved in clubs! Obviously there are some classes that everybody has to take, and with those you just have to get through it. The required math and science classes are rough, but you shouldn't let these classes define your high school career! It's better to focus on classes with smart, and passionate students who like the same subjects you do. Some classes with hardworking, students are AP Lit and AP Euro. Since the level is so high only dedicated students take them. Plus the teachers are great.Getting involved is also very important. If you're unsure what to do I would suggest the Quidditch club. It's not just for Harry Potter fans, lots of the members are football players, or friends of the people in charge. Everyone is very friendly, the game is hilarious, and it's a great way to meet different people. Don't let the slightly obnoxious advertising turn you away- this is the best club at Seaholm!
