We offer various extracurricular activities at our high school, Woodrow Wilson. We offer many athletic sports, clubs, and different academic programs. It is recommended for students to participate in extracurriculars. They’ll be able to put them in their resumes and college applications. They will also grow from these experiences and become better peers. Our different sports clubs allow students to grow, learn, and have fun interacting with teammates. By participating in these sports, they grow their personal, physical, and communication skills. We have Fall, Winter, and Spring sports at Wilson.
During the Fall we offer football, girls volleyball, and girls tennis. During the Winter, we offer boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, and wrestling. Our spring sports include boys volleyball, boys tennis, softball, baseball, and our track and field team. We also have a drill team, cheer team, and Students Run LA (SRLA). Due to the COVID restrictions our athletic director, Mr. Gonzalez, has strict policies to participate in conditioning for the sports. We offer 11 different clubs at our school. Each club has a different advisor and some of these clubs might not be active due to COVID-19. These clubs give students opportunities to get involved in school and gain experiences and memories.
