Activities and Leadership Opportunities

Grandview High School is committed to providing a varied and engaging student activities program. In addition, students have multiple opportunities to exercise leadership in both formal and informal venues. We have over 40 clubs and many co-curricular activities. Our activities program is made possible by a group of dedicated faculty and staff who put in long hours and shares an amazing variety of talents with our students.

Starting A Club

New clubs may be started if a group of (at least 10) students have an interest and an adult sponsor is willing to supervise. Individual competitive sports are not considered clubs. The student leader of the organization needs to come to the Activities department to pick up a New Club Formation Process Packet. Students interested in learning more about student leadership at GHS, should email Diana Stordeur (dstordeur@cherrycreekschools.org) to register for the online Grandview Student Leader Community.
