At Piñon High School, we know that extracurricular activities are paramount to growing well-rounded adults. And studies show that students who are involved in activities outside of school hours do better academically. Keeping this in mind, our dedicated staff members and community offer numerous activities for every student’s interest. Every student who wants to participate in a club must have a physical on file and complete all of the documentation from the handbook. For your convenience, you will find all of these forms in the left sidebar of this page.
The National Honor Society is a national organization that recognizes students with outstanding academics. Students participate in service activities and grow their character as they maintain excellent grades and serve as role models for our school community.
Students who have an interest in a career in business learn through this leadership and career development program. FBLA is one of the largest student-run organizations in the U.S.
Members of the Eagles student council gain leadership and community-building skills as they help to lead our school. Representatives from all grade levels meet to share the concerns and ideas of the entire student body.
