You're just entering high school and the fact you're thinking about your spike now is great. You're going to have tons of time to figure out the best way to hone your spike so I would recommend trying out a bunch of different things your freshman year. Figure out what you like and what you don't like and you can expand from there.

Here's a list of ECs for political science majors that I recommend checking out: https://blog.collegevine.com/extracurriculars-for-high-schoolers-interested-in-studying-political-science/.

Here's a list of 900+ ECs, this can help give you ideas or you could modify something you see there to fit your interests: https://blog.collegevine.com/your-complete-list-of-extracurricular-activities/
