Student Clubs & Activities

Student clubs and activities are a wonderful way for you to get to know others with like-minded interests. These also provide a unique opportunity to experience something new, develop a skill, serve others, and most importantly, just have fun.

National Honor Society

NHS is a nationwide organization for high school students in the U.S. and outlying territories and consists of many chapters in high schools. Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Students apply for NHS going into their junior year. Additional community service requirements are expected of students.

Scholars Bowl

An academic competition in which teams compete to answer questions in the areas of foreign language, English, history, science, math, fine arts, and current events.
