Extracurricular Activities

The High School offers their students a large variety of extracurricular activities (e.g. clubs, academic, athletic and performance groups). These activities promote German-American relations and enable students to learn, refine and demonstrate their talents and skills outside the classroom. They play an instrumental role in the integration of German and American students.

Inclusion. Diversity. Empathy. Awareness. Service. The IDEAS Club was born of the demand that in our time of crises, in our Age of Anxiety, when democracy is fragile, when intolerance is increasingly tolerated, we must intensify our efforts to create a safe but challenging space to discuss and celebrate diversity. IDEAS is about challenging stereotypes, grappling with our biases, and tackling tough issues. 

We have weekly meetings to discuss tough issues, we conduct lessons in elementary and middle school classes, we have a quarterly journal and a podcast
