Clubs come and go as interests wax or wane. In the past we have had interested students participate in programs such as Volunteer Paideia, tutoring at various locations around town, a junior high newspaper and an art club. Below are some established clubs from last year.
The Paidiea Junior High Academic Bowl Team competes against other schools from November until April, and in that time, the team participates in 8-10 tournaments. Practices are typically held once a week during lunch, but 3-4 times per week in the weeks preceding tournaments.
The Jew Crew is a forum for Jewish members of the Paideia JH community to keep in touch with each other and their Judaism. Students meet with a dynamic local Rabbi during lunchtime as often as his schedule permits.
The Paideia Junior High Math Counts Team participates in the national competition with other middle schools across the country. The team practices once per week during lunchtime, analyzing and processing the types of problems likely to appear in competition.
Interested junior high students are matched by gender, in groups of about 10, with two high school students who have been trained as mentors. They meet twice a month throughout the fall semester as a support network for each other.
People with a Purpose (T.R.I.B.E. Onyx)
People with a Purpose is a support group for African-American boys and girls. They meet twice a month to eat lunch and discuss issues central to being at Paideia as an African-American student.
