A Valued Education since 1959

We encourage our students to personalize their education through extracurricular clubs, activities, and athletics. We offer a variety of opportunities for students to discover their interests, hone their skills, meet new people, collaborate with like-minded people, and get involved in our community. To help familiarize our students with the varied opportunities for club involvement, a Club Expo is held early in the school year. Click here to view the most recent power point presentation on some of our clubs and organizations.
