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.
