High School Clubs

Poetry slam 2012

Get involved, stay active.

HS Clubs are the hub of daily activity for many high school students. Through these clubs, students learn to be more effective leaders, hone their athletic talents, sharpen their mental skills or just try something of interest to them. Club meeting dates and times are wide and varied and examples of clubs being offered this year included:

Academic Clubs

C-Squared Media Club

C-Squared is a multipurpose club that uses state-of-the-art media tools such as digital cameras, camcorders and editing programs such as iMovie, Garage Band, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, etc. The club covers an assortment of events such as SAISA events, Media Fair and AISD Idol. C2 is open to all grade levels regardless of technical expertise.

Chess Club

Chess Club is about having fun and improving your play. The primary focus is on the noble game of chess, but we will explore other strategy games as well. We invite you to join us for a little mental wrestling. We'll provide the games—you just need to sign up.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Bangladesh has been building decent and affordable housing and has advocated on behalf of those needing shelter in Bangladesh since 1999. AISD Habitat for Humanity has had a working relationship with H4H-Bangladesh almost since its conception, with our students working with the community in many fund raising activities and building houses. This year promises to be a good year with at least three builds planned and another Habitat for Humanity/river boat class trip.

Math Club

Quite possibly the most amazing place to hang out Monday after school, Math Club is your opportunity to get homework help and test prep from math teachers. We’ll also do lots of structured problems to help prepare for SAISA Math in November in Dhaka.

Model United Nations

Model United Nations (MUN) is an activity in which students role play the parts of delegates to the United Nations. They research their country’s foreign policy, learn about global issues under discussion, and prepare resolutions to be debated at this year's MUN conference in Bangkok.

National Honor Society

The National Honor Society is an organization that recognizes students for their outstanding accomplishments in the areas of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. NHS meets every two weeks during the year to work on service projects and to identify ways of making positive contributions to the school community. To be eligible for membership, a student must be a sophomore, junior or senior with a 3.5 cumulative scholastic average and must complete 
an application in the spring.

South Asian Club

The South Asian Club celebrates and promotes everything that is South Asian. Dance, language, paintings, food, fashion and culture are all highlighted with a variety of South Asian cultural events including: Bengali Cultural Night, Victory Day, Mother Language Day, Eid celebrations, Diwali Night, Holi Day, Shaheed Day and the International Fair. Students learn first hand through involvement all about Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

Speech and Debate

Self-motivated students practice and improve their speaking and debating skills in a variety of different forms and contexts, refine skills necessary for success in college and in life, and have fun while pursuing an academic activity. The mission of the club is to help students become effective communicators, critical thinkers, and valued leaders. Through activities within our school and competition with other schools, we also hope to increase student awareness of the value of good speaking and debating skills.

Student Council

The Student Council provides a way for the student body to have an impact on their lives here at school, as well as leadership opportunities for those so inclined. This is accomplished by giving the students voice through town meetings and class representatives. The Student Council is active in social service, providing students with various events for the general welfare and spirit of the school. Elections for class officers are held near the end of each school year.

Cricket

Parents are organized to help with coaching, recording and organizing swimmers. About once a month there will a "Race Day," a chance for all swimmers to perform their best. Special Notes: begins after SAISA swim season and then runs continuously; includes some MS students too.

Tennis

This is a great way for students to get involved in a lifelong sport! We begin by working towards skill development, strategy, fitness, tennis etiquette and sportsmanship. All skill levels are welcome and a less competitive environment is emphasized where players can learn and enjoy the game. Note:  meets 1st semester only.

Volleyball

Interested in the dynamic sport of volleyball? If you are, this club is for you. Seasoned players or those new to the sport are all welcome. Serve, bump, set, and spike your way into being a better volleyballer. Both boys and girls welcomed. Note:  begins in late September, after the SAISA volleyball season is finished.

Weight Training

Students build strength and stamina by using the universal machine, dumbbells, elliptical machines, treadmills, free weights and jump ropes in the exercise room. Students may drop in just to stay toned and buff, or as a way to supplement their SAISA team training.
