The Duarte High School student activities program strives to provide students with a wide range of cultural, social, and athletic activities that strengthen the bond between the student and DHS. DHS student activities facilitate personal growth by providing opportunities to develop leadership skills through teamwork, goal-setting, problem solving and planning skills. Research on student activities has shown students who participate in activities are likely to have greater academic success, develop leadership skills and report a higher level of school satisfaction when compared to students who are not involved with activities.
Duarte High School ASB is committed to creating a positive student activities experience by developing a program that meets the following standards:
- High level of student participation
- High level of faculty/staff participation
- Equal access for all students
- Response to student interest
- Community service
- Leadership development
