High School Activities

Richland #44 students have a variety of opportunities outside of the classroom that will teach them to be critical thinkers, collaborate with others, be creative, and effectively communicate.

Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and are thus considered part of a well-rounded education.
