​STUDENT LIFE

Welcome to the Student Life page of our school.
Almost all of you are involved in one of the Student Life programs, whether it's our Trunk Talk Broadcasting Program, clubs and organization, or providing community service.

These programs are excellent ways to get to know other students with similar interests... and they don't look bad on a college or university application, either. Most schools look for how you've spent your time outside the classroom.

These clubs and programs help you work on leadership skills, find out more about one or more of your interests and explore new horizons. Some are even part of elective classes, allowing you to get credit for your work. Others are just because... just because you enjoy.
