Eastchester High School offers many opportunities to explore interests through after school clubs and activities. Extra-curriculars can be the difference between an ordinary high school experience and an extraordinary one. Most people say that clubs are a benefit because they “look good on your resume.” But, it only looks good if you invest time and passion into clubs you enjoy. The most important reason colleges look at your extra-curricular activities is because it adds to your academic transcript in a more personal way—it defines and differentiates you. But there are plenty of other reasons to join clubs. Here is what others have to say about how clubs can make your high school experience more than just ordinary:
“If I could offer any advice to the future of Eastchester, it would be to get involved in one or two extracurricular activities that you can really have fun in. Looking back, some of my greatest memories are from the extracurricular activities I was a part of.” (Scott Symons, Class of 2015)
“Through clubs, you are given the chance to expand your social horizons as you collaborate and make friends with people from all different grades. There is nothing more rewarding than spending time with a group of people who share the same interests as you, as you work toward achieving common goals, whether they be projects, publications or productions.” (Rodlyn-mae Banting, Class of 2015)
“Being part of extra-curriculars has given me the opportunity to better define myself by exploring my passions, and has motivated me to take my interests to the outside community.” (Caitlin Cimons, Class of 2016)
