When the new Atlas schedule went into effect, it offered up new blocks of time that were turned into new opportunities. Having a dedicated club period means that everyone can participate, and clubs don't have to compete with other after school commitments.
Clubs rotate each term so all middle school students take part in three different clubs each year. Clubs are faculty created but student inspired, and vary depending on student and teacher interest, giving students the chance to pursue existing interests as well as discover new ones. In addition to building skills, clubs provide enrichment outside of the classroom, and, because they are mixed grades, clubs also broaden social circles.
