students can express their talents in a supportive social setting.
Students can help their peers through the School Council, help
their neighbors through the Community Service Club, or help
themselves discover a new area of interest through Aerobics,
Cinema, Culinary Club and more.
Shepard Schools offers students a chance to succeed through
teamwork in competitive sporting activities such as Girls or Boys Basket-
ball as well as Volleyball, Softball, Wrestling and Flag Football.
Swimming and Bowling are also offered as extracurricular activities, and
the school session is highlighted by Wrestling and Basketball Tournaments, a Foul Shot competition, and Student-Faculty games.
Shepard Schools students can enjoy numerous in-school
assemblies and off-premises field trips throughout the school
year, from an opportunity to take in a Broadway show or profes-
sional sporting event, to a chance to go fishing or horseback
riding in the great outdoors. Pizza lunches, bagel breakfasts and
multicultural events are also part of the fun, in a setting that’s
both academically and socially stimulating.
