Clubs and Athletics

NPES students are actively engaged in enrichment, play, and social activities they find fun and expansive. Many clubs provide students who have a particular area of interest an opportunity to deepen their learning, while others lead students to discover new fields to explore. All offer meaningful opportunities for students to grow individually and as members of a community, as they connect with classmates and teachers and coaches. Most NPES students participate in multiple activities each year. Keystone extracurricular programs at North Park include basketball (including a large north side tournament that NPES hosts annually), Science Olympiad (with 6th, 7th and 8th grade teams), and the arts (visual art, drama, and music).
