Involvement in School Activities and Organizations Is Valuable for Students

Sallie B. Howard School of Arts & Science offers not only a top-tier academic education but also various fun and educational enrichment programs. Our science fairs, honor societies, chess team, sports teams, and other activities help students enjoy themselves, make friends and learn valuable skills they’ll need as they get older.

The Benefits of Enrichment Programs

Students can learn valuable life skills and even many academic skills outside the classroom. Here are just a few of the most important ones:

  • Communication Skills
    Students often meet peers at social clubs whom they would not have met otherwise. They learn how to communicate well with people of all ages and walks of life, a valuable skill that will serve them well in any industry.
  • Teamworking Skills
    Many clubs and programs require students to work with others to accomplish shared goals. Students learn how to listen to others, appreciate the input of team members, and do their share of the work in order to get a job done, win a competition, or accomplish a club goal.
  • Improved Self-Esteem
    Students who join a club or organization will likely discover skills and abilities they never knew they had. As they learn new skills, their self-esteem will grow, and they will become more confident in themselves and what they have to offer.
  • Time Management Skills
    Students who work with club members may do so without direct parental or teacher supervision. Thus, they learn skills such as self-discipline, initiative, time management, and responsibility.
  • Academic Skills
    It’s one thing to learn about academic skills in a school book. It’s a different thing to apply these skills in the “real world.” Students who join a club get to apply these academic skills, making them more likely to remember what they’ve learned and appreciate the importance of school.
  • Empathy
    Many school organizations and programs work to give back to the community. Students who partake in these events learn to care for community members and the local environment. This training prepares them to become caring, concerned community members who look out for the needs of others.

Sallie B. Howard school enrollment is open to children and teenagers of all ages, genders, ethnicities, abilities, and walks of life. Contact us to find out how we can help your children reach their full potential.
