STUDENTS

CLUBS & ACTIVITIES

School is a place to learn about yourself academically and to develop and pursue hobbies and other interests. We encourage students to participate in our school activities. Activities along with academics allow students to develop skills in helping others and communicating well. Extracurricular activities or clubs sponsored by the school do not exclude students on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or homelessness."
