Clubs

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.
