At Excelsior we believe in the importance of physical fitness and character development. That's why we offer a variety of intramural sports programs, allowing students to engage in friendly competition. We believe in the importance of balancing academics and extracurricular activities, therefore we require our students to maintain their academic performance to be eligible for participation in sports. Engaging in intramural sports not only promotes physical health but also fosters teamwork, camaraderie, and leadership skills. We believe that being part of a team enhances a student's sense of belonging and instills valuable life lessons, all while promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. By providing these opportunities, we aim to nurture well-rounded individuals who excel both in the classroom and on the field.
At Excelsior we encourage students to take on leadership roles through our Associated Student Body (ASB) and Yearbook programs. These positions allow students to shape the school's culture, plan events, and leave a lasting impact on their peers. We take pride in preparing our students to be future leaders not only within the school but also in the wider community. Through partnerships with local organizations and county-wide initiatives, students have opportunities to assume leadership roles and make a difference in the world around them.
Our school takes pride in its music program, which includes beginning band, concert band, and guitar classes. Music education not only enhances creativity but also improves cognitive skills and boosts self-confidence. Whether students are just starting or are seasoned musicians, our music classes provide a nurturing environment to grow their passion for music.
At Excelsior we recognize the importance of preparing our students for the future. Through our dual enrollment program, students can take college-level courses while still in high school, providing them with a head start on their higher education journey. This allows our students to challenge themselves academically and gain valuable college experience before they even graduate.
Learning goes beyond the classroom at Excelsior. We believe in hands-on experiences and exposure to real-world scenarios. Our students have the chance to participate in educational field trips that complement their studies and provide a deeper understanding of the subjects they are learning. Additionally, we organize college tours to inspire our students to pursue higher education and explore various career paths.
