Activities and Clubs? Lots! If your interest isn’t represented in a club – get a few friends together with the same interest, get a faculty advisor, write a charter (we will help) and once it is approved by Leadership, let students know when you are meeting and you have established a new club at Nathan Hale!
Dances? Yes! We have our Homecoming Dance, Winter Ball, and yes, Prom!
Spanish, Japanese & French are our world Languages
Annual trip to Japan - Each year, Naha High School students come to Hale and some of our students go to Naha, Japan.
Lunch Time at Hale: We all have the same lunch – you can see all of your friends! Students are everywhere - in the Commons, in the halls in “locker lunch groups”, in classrooms watching films, hanging out, playing guitars and attending club meetings.
Yellow Buses? We don’t have them. If you live beyond the “walk zone” you get an Orca bus pass each month.
Logbooks and Tape – you will go through lots of both during your first two years at Hale. Academy (9th grade) classes and Integrated Studies (10th grade) classes use them. Easier to keep track of your work in than 3 ring binders. That means you get credit for all of the work you do because you know where it when it is time to turn it in!
