-- From “The Case for High School Activities” published by the National Federation of State High School Associations:
Activities support the academic mission of schools.
They are not a diversion, but rather an extension of a good educational program. Students who participate in activity programs tend to have:
  • higher grade-point averages
  • better attendance records
  • lower dropout rates and
  • fewer discipline problems than students generally. 
Activities are inherently educational.
Activity programs provide valuable lessons for many practical situations. Through participation in activity programs, students learn:
  • teamwork
  • sportsmanship
  • winning and losing
  • the rewards of hard work
  • self-discipline
  • build self-confidence and
  • develop skills to handle competitive situations.

These are qualities the public expects schools to produce in students so they become responsible adults and productive citizens.

Activities foster success in later life.
Participation in high school activities is often a predictor of later success -- in college, a career, and becoming a contributing member of society.
