Extracurricular at Green Tech
Green Tech High is proud to offer a multitude of programs and clubs for students to participate in. From our victorious athletic programs to student and faculty run clubs, there is something for every student to find interest in. We have a very strong understanding of the importance of outside-the-classroom engagement for our students. These programs offer a space where students can explore their interests, develop new hobbies, and excel outside the academic realm as well as provide a positive social experience with their peers and faculty members. The students learn leadership skills, team building skills, and responsibility for things they care about. Check out the list of extracurricular Green Tech has to offer!
Anime club is a place for students to let their inner nerd show by being with others who are interested in Japanese animation or manga. We watch different genres of anime, have group debates over characters and shows, host art and writing contests for club and non-club members, as well as hold a trivia night at the end of each month.

E Sports Game Club
eSports is the wave of the present and the future. The gaming industry has grown exponentially in the last few years opening up career opportunities in almost every corner of the industry. This includes going Pro and playing games like NBA2K and so much more for a living. Colleges are expanding their own eSports teams and offering lucrative scholarships to talented students that can help them pay for higher education. Careers in game design are STEAM careers, meaning there is a place for almost everyone even if science and math aren’t their primary interests. Games require writers, voice actors, visual artists, and so much more.
Gaming also has an outsized reputation in Black, brown, and lower income households. Several generations may bond over their mutual love of Madden NFL and Call of Duty. Playing video games is an excellent way to connect, to learn teamwork, and to become comfortable with the technology that shapes our tomorrows and our communities value this.
And yet, Black, brown, and lower income people are drastically underrepresented in professional gaming and game design. Frequently this is because they do not have access to the kinds of equipment that middle class families tend to have. As a result, extremely talented players may never have a chance to get in the game and wow everyone with their gameplay.
At Green Tech High, we’ve made a goal to close the Gaming Gap. We’ve launched an official varsity eSports team and are installing a state-of-the-art gaming lab that will put an exciting future in reach for Green Tech students. We aim to educate, inform, and enable young men to reach for opportunities within the field of gaming and game technology as well as open up critical opportunities for college scholarships and even cash prizes as they arise.
We only have a limited number of spaces that we can fill every year, so we encourage you to enroll now and get in the game.
