Developing Talents and Interests
KPHS’s individualized approach tailors club offerings to students’ interests. These have included everything from culinary arts to gaming, robotics to volleyball. Each club is designed to inspire students to develop their talents, explore their passions, and make meaningful connections beyond the classroom.
All club offerings for the school year will be based on student interest and availability.
For students who loves the artistic process and want to become better artists. Art and Design is an after-school activity that provides materials, instruction, and support for students who are seeking a creative outlet in addition to their academic schedule. All students are given the ability to explore mediums such as: drawing, painting, ceramics, and photography.
For students interested in food prep and creating new dishes. The purpose of the Culinary Club is to provide an environment for students to socialize, be creative, learn cooking skills, and have fun. Culinary Club students prepare food and enjoy eating the results.
For students interesting in developing and enhancing strong communication skills. By participating in the KPHS Debate Club, students will learn vital skills such as communication, leadership, oration, and argumentation. At the club there will be a series of lectures, interactive drill sessions, and an end-of-the-year in-house debate competition among the students.

Open to all students, Gaming offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of gaming activities and learn game theory.
