Beyond the classroom, our students are engaged in a wide variety of school-sponsored activities.
Our academic program is further enriched by extracurricular programs and experiences.
Clubs change annually based on student and teacher interest. We encourage students to bring their ideas.
Leadership Team — Open to students in grade 6–8, this is a leadership development program for middle schoolers.

Field trips offer a chance for students to learn outside the classroom. Recent trips have included: Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Young People’s Concerts, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Cincinnati Art Museum, and Newport Aquarium.

Healthy bodies fuel healthy minds! All students are eligible for free breakfast and free lunch each school day as part of the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program. Each healthy meal prepared includes protein, fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, and milk.
