Benefits of Joining Clubs are an integral part of our school culture. Crestwood High School has many clubs, from academic to athletic to community service. Joining a club is a great way to make new friends and develop leadership skills. Also, many colleges look to see that students are involved outside the classroom, which shows they are well-rounded.
How to Get Involved With Clubs Students are encouraged to join a club or organization that matches their interests. If you would like to join a club or have any questions about one of the clubs listed below, please contact the club sponsor.
When Do Clubs Meet Clubs meet during school on the assigned club meeting days – the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. Some clubs meet after school as specified by the club sponsor.
