Comprehensive club list for the 2021-22 school year


What kind of clubs are available at Manual for 2021-22? Photo courtesy of Isabella Bonilla

Isabella Bonilla

Manual has a wide variety of clubs, most of which are open to any and everyone. Clubs never discriminate based on magnet, sex, gender, race or orientation. Any limitations that are set come from a try-out (Science Olympiad, Quick Recall, Problem-Solvers, etc.) or having to be a certain grade level (Steering Committee). The diverse array of clubs available make for a unique experience and can provide ample social or self discovery opportunities. After school activities help connect students with common interests, provide leadership roles and can make for a character building addition to any resume.
