Clubs & Advisors

-A A +A

Clubs and Activities are offered to students so they can develop social skills, learn new hobbies and participate in appropriate leisure time activities. Co-curricular, extracurricular,and special interest groups are a valuable asset to student life at WHS. These groups help develop talents and skills, educate students beyond the regular school day, and provide times and memories that make high school an enjoyable part of one's life. Our challenge to every student is to get involved in the WHS experience.

WHS recognizes the extracurricular programs as an integral part of the curriculum. We believe that well-organized, purposeful activities reinforce and enrich the classroom experience. As there is much to be learned outside the "walls" of the classroom, clubs and organizations become instrumental vehicles for students to both learn about and to become a part of the school. Established organizations appear below. Students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular programs and to request the information of clubs in which they are interested. Clubs and organizations are limited only bythe interests of the students.
