AHS Clubs

Club are a vibrant part of Ashland High School. Students can join one of the many options already organized or they are welcome to start their own club or activity by following a process that begins with finding an advisor. Our goal is to have every student active in some activity that engages their interest.

Through our clubs and activities, students develop new friendships, have the opportunity to lead their peers, and find avenues for their creativity.
