Philosophy: Glenbard North High School encourages students to participate in worthwhile student organizations and activities because our school considers such participation to be vital to our studentsí educational welfare. Students should gain skills by working effectively together in democratic groups. Research has repeatedly shown that students actively engaged in co-curricular activities generally do better in school and life than those who do not become interested in such functions. Student organizations and activities offer an opportunity for students to develop wholesome relationships with adults; and the teachers have an opportunity to gain valuable insights concerning the students with whom they work. Students may gain valuable experience available only as a part
of the planning, conducting, and evaluation of school projects.
