With parent and teacher support, we are also happy to offer clubs before, during and after school hours. Clubs teach our students about commitment and involvement, helping them build relationships and interest. They also offer the opportunity for students to discover new passions and hobbies. Clubs change each term based on student and parent/teacher involvement, ranging from Chess Club to Musical Theatre, Math Club, Robotics Club, Glee Club and STEM Club.
