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.
