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.
Ida B Wells 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). Ida B Wells students participate in club lacrosse, rugby, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, chess, mock trial, model united nations, and many more extracurricular activities for all interests. Ida B Wells High School is alive with creative and passionate individuals and a sense of infinite possibilities.
Ida B Wells 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, IBW's clubs add variety and fun to life in high school. Join a club, meet new friends!
Students interested in forming a new club will need to complete application paperwork. The time to do so will be announced in the school newsletter. This is printed in the summer before clubs for the new school year are established.
Individual clubs provide participation paperwork, which may also include having a valid phyisical on file. Clubs follow the same grade requirements as IBW/PIL athletics.
