Student Government and Clubs

Israel Club

Student life at Maimonides Upper School includes an active Student Government, groups for both middle and high school students and a wide array of clubs for high school students.

Student Government elections are held during the first few weeks of school. Elected officers work with a faculty advisor to organize dances, holidays, celebrations and other student activities, including lunch-time competitions, pep rallies and the Homecoming floats and parade.

SDJA also offers Student Clubs for both lower and upper school students promote an opportunity to explore areas of interest with like-minded peers and a faculty advisor. Students arrange lunch-time meetings to work together, hear guest speakers, and plan extracurricular outings.

At the end of every year, all student clubs are dissolved. At the start of the new school year, students may form a club to pursue a particular interest by submitting a Club Petition to be approved by the ASB advisor.

Current student clubs include:

  • Minecraft
  • Chess
  • Helping Hearts/Community Service
  • Dancing
  • Foreign Film Lovers
  • Culture Food
  • Kindness Committee
  • Fashion
  • Friendship Circle
  • Photography
  • 4th & 5th Grade Garden Club
