Clubs & Student Organizations
Whether their interests lie in creating a school fashion show, building robots, or discussing contemporary social issues, all students are encouraged to find an outlet for their creativity and passions.
Each fall, JCHS hosts a Club Fair where students can join clubs and start new ones, including clubs focused on creating a product (like a literary magazine, Yearbook, or monthly “JTV” episode) or finding support around a shared identity or interest (like the Gender & Sexualities Alliance and the Young Republicans.)

Va’ads – Community Engagement Committees
Environmental & Gardening Club (E-Va’ad) – “Greening” the school, the neighborhood, and the larger community through gardening and other volunteer work.
Fashion With Compassion – A chapter of the larger non-profit organization, Fashion with Compassion. At the end of the year, the club will put on a Fashion with Compassion fashion show and fundraising event; which, includes a runway show, that is followed by a vendor sale. 95% of the proceeds go to a charity of our choice based in Israel and the remaining five percent go to the fashion with compassion organization. This is a student-wide initiative that hopes to engage the entire JCHS community.
Flashmobs for Change – Club members rehearse a dance number. Those students perform that dance number at a public location unannounced, and other students circle the area with buckets where people can donate money to a chosen charity.
Gender & Sexualities Alliance (GSA) – Educating and advocating for the rights of LGBT people and celebrating our own community.
Interact – International aid and humanitarian service as part of the national Rotary Club.
JFCS Va’ad (Jewish Family & Children’s Services) – Volunteering with Jewish Family & Children’s Services to serve the elderly, housebound, youth, new immigrants, and other populations in need.
