• GFHS Clubs

    GFHS has a wide variety of clubs, ranging from speech and discussion groups to those of an athletic or service nature. With so many choices, our hope is the individual student can recognize one or more of their interests in the form of a club.

    Besides providing a student with the opportunity to pursue his/her interests, the clubs are valuable as a chance for self-expression and association with one's fellow students. 

    At this time, only the number of clubs in operation limits the number of clubs a student can participate in.  It is urged that students take on only as many activities as they can easily handle.  Most of the organizations in Great Falls High School take in new members at the beginning of each school year.  Initiations for any school-sponsored club or activity that infringe upon the rights of others are not allowed.  Violations will be handled on an individual basis by the administration. The following is the present list of clubs, their activities, and information about them.

    Please make sure to get a permission slip from the advisor to participate in any of these clubs.

    Art Club is geared towards students who are creative and love art. Art Club is inclusive and the core values of Great Falls High are upheld: do what’s right; treat others the way you want to be treated; and do your best. Volunteer opportunities and workshops will be available to members. Workshops, studio tours, and volunteering may be after school or on weekends and may include travel/meetings off campus. All activities are geared to enrich the members' art experience and expression and sense of belonging.

    The club is open to all students in grades 9-12 who are interested in cycling.

    The purpose of the bike club is to promote the sport of cycling, provide a safe and enjoyable environment for students to cycle, and foster a sense of community among members. Additionally, we would like to promote our excellent trail system in town, the River’s Edge Trail.

    The club will offer a variety of activities, such as group rides, bike safety, trail maintenance, and social events.

    We believe that cycling is a great way to get exercise, explore the community, and meet new people.
