City High is a academic and career focused public school that allows their student to play for their home school athletic teams. To participate, students must fill out and turn in an Athletic Intent Form by June 28th of each school year.
Activities and Clubs
Each school year in the first trimester the Activities Fair takes place to introduce students to the activities and clubs City High has to offer. This gives the students a chance to sign up for the year.
Throughout the day all students visit each club/ activity table presenting information about what they do. It is very informal and is typically held around conferences so we can let families know about it as well.
