Activities and Clubs

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! Check out the club webpage for our most current clubs.


We have our Homecoming Dance (not formal), Winter Ball (semi formal) and yes, Prom (formal)!

Spanish, Japanese and 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.

Getting to School

All SPS high school students receive ORCA cards!

High School doesn’t have to be a maze! Academies, Mentorship (like homeroom), and helpful students and staff make Nathan Hale “Freshman Friendly”!
