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.
Clubs provide an opportunity for students to explore and appreciate topics they may or may not otherwise pursue. Each grade level offers 4 clubs which students will rotate through during the school year. Clubs meet every Friday after lunch.
