Learning and Thriving Outside the Classroom at New Haven Community Schools
Getting an education isn’t just about the things you learn in the classroom during regular school hours. Getting involved in extracurricular activities can be a very important way to learn about teamwork and other important life skills while having some fun at the same time. When you’re looking for a new home and want to make sure you’ll be close to good schools, but it’s easy to focus on a school’s academic track record and overlook the extracurricular activities available.
As a resident of HomeFirst™’s Meadow Creek or Riverbook manufactured housing communities, your kids will be able to go to school in the New Haven Community Schools district. Not only do these schools have lots of unique opportunities to offer, teenagers who attend New Haven High School will have a multitude of extracurricular activities to choose from.
Athletic teens will have their choice of over 20 different sports teams to join, including varsity and junior varsity football, basketball, baseball, girls volleyball, and cheerleading. They also have track, bowling, wrestling, soccer, and softball. For cheerleaders, they also have a competitive cheer team in addition to the varsity and junior varsity teams. Students who excel both at varsity sports and academics are also welcome to join the school’s Varsity Club.
New Haven High School also has lots of excellent non-athletic clubs to join. Several of their clubs can help build excellent leadership skills, like Student Council, National Honor Society, Model United Nations, and general leadership clubs available for each grade level. Budding entrepreneurs can join the Business Professionals of America or the Junior Achievement Club. Future writers can work with the school newspaper while teens interested in a career in law enforcement can join the Law Enforcement club.
Since New Haven Community Schools have a reputation for being very eco friendly, New Haven High School has some clubs that are in line with that philosophy. Some schools might have an Auto Club where members can learn more about cars, but New Haven High School’s Auto Club also involves learning about biodiesel fuels and even making their own biodiesel fuels that are used to fuel the district’s school busses. Students can also join a Green Careers Club if that’s something that interests them.
In addition to all these unique programs, students are also able to join a Drama Club, Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.), an eBay club, and even participate in a Science Olympiad!
