    Activities, Clubs and Teams

    Petrides has a number of clubs, teams and activities available to our students. We are hoping that all of our students get involved during your high school career in one or more of these wonderful clubs, teams or activities. Getting involved in a club, activity or team will not only give you the opportunity to purse your interests but also to make friends and have fun. It is proven that students who are involved in extracurricular activities have higher grades, less discipline problems and are more likely to get into the college of their choice.

    Click the link to see all all of our Activities, Clubs & Teams

    If you do not see the club, activity or team that you are interested in on the chart below you are welcome to start the club. Please see me anytime for information about any of the clubs, teams or activities or about starting a new club. Go Panthers!!!
