    Students are encouraged to take a rigorous academic course load, balanced by extracurricular activities for a well-rounded high school experience. Whether it's sports, performance, or non-academic clubs, every student should be engaged outside of class in one or more activities that provide important community-building opportunities and engage the mind and body in other ways.

    Wilson has a successful athletic program for both men and women and is a perennial power in the 6A division of the Portland Interscholastic League (PIL). Wilson students participate in club lacrosse, rugby, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, chess, mock trial, model united nations, and many more extracurricular activities for all interests. Wilson High School is alive with creative and passionate individuals and a sense of infinite possibilities.

    For more information, contact:
    Morgan McFadden, Activities Director
    Mike Nolan, Athletic Director

    Wilson's selection of student-run clubs changes every year. There are many clubs to choose from, representing a dizzying array of interests from knitting to chess, hiking, or mock trial. Some clubs are serious, with either an intellectual or political focus (for example, the French club, Model United Nations, Feminists' Union). Some are just for fun, whether it is Hybrid-ball or dragon boating. Whatever the focus, Wilson's clubs add variety and fun to life in high school. Join a club, meet new friends!

    Students Of Color in Action Association (SOCAA) The mission of the Students of Color in Action Association is to work hand in hand with teachers and students alike to foster the social, cultural and intellectual development of all students at Wilson High School. SOCAA intends to promote understanding, unity, and solutions through education, open discussions, events, and activities. I plan to carry out this mission by hosting student-led discussions about different topics including racism, ethnic/race identity, and what it means to be a student of color. As intended in the mission statement of SOCCA, this club is intended for students of color to find solidarity with other students of color and I also know the power of white allies. My white peers are welcome to come and listen in on discussions we are having as Wilson High School is a diverse climate. If a club member wants to speak but feels more comfortable sharing just with other students of color, I believe that my white peers would respect/understand and step outside for a moment. Through SOCAA, I also hope to foster a student-teacher discussions in which teachers could hear the classroom experiences of students of color in the classroom and better understand how they could create a more diverse and inclusive classroom environment. Mr. Muraoka would be our club adviser, and we would meet during lunch on every Tuesday during lunch in Mr. Muraoka’s room. Every Tuesday during lunch
