Extracurricular Activities

  • Extracurricular activities are an important part of our program at Lawrence School. Participation can be an interesting and exciting experience and an opportunity to learn a new skill, meet new friends, try a new sport, follow a new interest or continue doing what you already like.

    All students are eligible and encouraged to participate in any extracurricular activity. However, the administration reserves the right to suspend participation by a student if disciplinary problems arise. Students must understand that after-school commitments to a classroom teacher take precedence over any extracurricular activity.

  • Lawrence School offers a variety of sports for both female and male students. For the purpose(s) of participation in Interscholastic Sports, the Lawrence School has adopted the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) standards as they apply to a prohibition of student use of tobacco products, non-prescription drugs, and/or alcohol use. MIAA handbook information is available at the Falmouth High School Athletic Office and online at www.miaa.net. Students are also required to meet a minimum standard of academic and behavioral achievement in order to participate in interscholastic sports programs.
