Student Activities

A vital part of a DWS education extends beyond the classroom to clubs and activities that help students discover their talents. Through student activities, Knights stretch as leaders and practice creative collaboration, whether they are working on a deadline for the school newspaper, mentoring at Girl Talk or performing in the School’s chorus.
