|ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS & EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES|
Battlefield's committed teachers regularly provide on-demand after-school enrichment, tutoring, and remediation and formalized, targeted intervention programs to meet the academic needs of identified or referred learners. Formal groups ranging from professional organizations and honor societies to impromptu teacher-student work sessions regularly provide support, scaffolding, and additional content. Our robust special and gifted education programs ensure support for the full spectrum of students.
From business groups to community service programs, Battlefield High School offers a rich tapestry of opportunities to get involved in something meaningful. Bobcat Athletics provide a full range of competitive sporting activities; our renowned arts programs afford outstanding music, art, and drama performance and participation experiences; and our IT program, robotics, debate, and service organizations have been regionally, nationally, and internationally competitive and recognized.
