We believe that extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on students both inside and outside of the classroom. Research indicates that participation in activities results in higher grades and graduation rates. Extra-curricular activities help students build skills, develop habits, make friends and gain mentors that can boost their self-esteem and help them say "no" to risky behaviors. Colleges also tend to prefer students who participate in extra-curricular activities as it shows initiative, accomplishment and commitment.
At Park Place Middle School, we offer a wide range of school-sponsored activities and encourage all of our students to get involved in activities that are of interest to them.
