Clubs and Organizations
All students are required to be a member of at least one school club. Working together in and outside the classroom develops a well-rounded, engaged student body and community.
E-Clubs run each Friday from 12:40-1:20 pm. Grades 6-8 students must join a Friday club unless they are a member of two lunch-time clubs. Grades 9-12 students must join a Friday club unless they belong to a lunch-time club; if so, they can join a second club or use that time to work on lunch-time club needs or do school work. All students will be dismissed at 1:30 pm on Fridays and buses depart at 3:15 pm.
A Club Fair, held the on the first E-Club day of the academic year, allows student club leaders to present his/her club offering. Junior and senior club leaders and faculty advisors will facilitate students’ understanding and selection of clubs.

In keeping with LTS philosophy, leading some components of school life hones leadership skills, encourages compassion, develops a sense of responsibility, and ensures that the community is embraced by peers. Student Council elections are held in the spring for rising 7-12 grade students. Grade 6 representatives are elected at the start of the school year.
LTS Ambassadors seek to foster a welcoming community for all students, celebrate diversity on campus, and promote unity and connection between different student groups at LTS. LTS Amabassador elections are held in the spring for rising 7-12 grade students. Grade 6 representatives are elected at the start of the following school year.
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society (NHS) was established in the 1920s to recognize outstanding students of scholarship, promote leadership and develop the character of high school students. These purposes translate into the criteria that LTS uses as membership for our local chapter and all members are expected to maintain the society’s expectations.
To be eligible to apply to NHS, a student must have attended LTS for at least one full year. The criteria for membership includes consistent grades in all courses above an 93 (91 for IB courses) as well as demonstrated excellence in leadership, service, and character within the Long Trail community.
