Our students participate in an array of exciting and educational afterschool clubs. These clubs provide students an opportunity to learn new skills, explore the world of the arts, and engage in athletics. Extracurricular involvement has been linked to improved student performance, increased leadership abilities, and greater teamwork skills.
Clubs are open to all students, regardless of age or abilities. Each club meets once a week immediately after school for an hour (from 2:45 PM - 3:50 PM). All clubs are fee-based.
