I'm going to be a sophomore at an Early College high school next year, and since my school has only been around for a few years (we are graduating our first class next year) we have almost no clubs. We have some of the more common ones- yearbook, math club, science olympiad, etc.
However, I was really looking to start a different club this fall. I live in southeastern North Carolina, and as sad as it is to say, the schools in our area kinda suck when it comes to extracurriculars. Bad sports teams, lack of club involvement (unless you're looking at the academically elite), stuff like that. I moved down here from Wisconsin, where nearly everyone was actively involved in school spirit, our sports, or a club. Since my school is different idea than other schools in the area, I really wanted to start a club based upon the same ideas (hard work, using different learning techniques, hands-on learning, etc).
So basically, the point of this is: what clubs do you guys recommend I look into starting this fall? Because of our small school size and the administration's eagerness to get students into the school spirit, I don't believe it'd be too hard to get my administration to agree with starting a club that's not too common. I really want something that:
-Gets people really involved
-Could lead to some possible trips to other places in the state/maybe even country
-Teaches all of us something new
-Leaves room for different activities
-Possibly original/uncommon in my area
