Clubs & Activities

School-sponsored clubs and activities gives students the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their goals and their strengths. Aside from having fun doing something that interests them, students gain valuable leadership, communication and work ethic skills. If you don't see a club or activity that interests you, reach out to the school about starting something new!

Mountain Bike Team

The Mountain Bike Club is an opportunity for middle level and high school students to hone their mountain biking skills, explore Nederland's amazing trails, work on skills with high-level coaches, and build team camaraderie. Races are festive events on courses throughout Colorado.  Find out more!



Robotics is a high school club (middle schoolers may participate too) seeking to bring relevance to traditional science and math curriculum. The club features adult mentors and high school students working together during a six week challenge to build a robot suitable for competition. The competition looks a little like a computer game come to life. Real robots built by the First Robotics team are driven by team members to obtain competition goals. Find out more!

CREW Clubs

CREW clubs are an opportunity for middle school students to take some time out the school day to be involved in something that they find interesting and fun. It's a time for students to relax and recharge during the school day. CREW clubs only meet during CREW time every other Thursday; they alternate with weeks of sustained silent reading.

  • Battle of the Books (Lori Ledbetter) - Battle of the Books is a Quiz Bowl Style Competition for students in middle school. Students work with a school team to read books from the 2019-2020 Battle of the Books list.
