Excelsior is… So Much More Than Just Great Academics
According to Media Planet a supplement in USA Today, “Students who participate in the arts, both in school and after school, demonstrate improved academic performance and lower drop out rates.”
Athletics/Band/Drama (or any other activity that requires a team effort): To be eligible for athletics, students must maintain a 2.3 grade point average (GPA). A probationary period of one semester will apply if students fall below the required GPA.
Extracurricular Activities: To be eligible for participation in club activities, field trips, and ASB or school events, facilitators will verify that all academic work and attendance is current. Facilitators must sign student permission slips for eligibility.
