At WLHS, students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of liberal arts co-curricular activities geared to many different interests.

It's Easy to Get Involved

Co-curricular activities provide students the opportunity to meet new friends and to gain valuable experience for future life roles. To participate in any co-curricular activity, students must be in “good standing” with a minimum of a 1.5 grade point average. Annually, over 85 percent of WLHS students participate in one or more co-curricular activities.
Clubs and activities meet before, during and after school, which means there is plenty of time to get involved, even for students who are active in sports.
