The Student Council represents the student body, serves as a liaison between students and the faculty, and participates in the overall management of student affairs. Executive Board Officers are elected by their peers during the spring for the following school year. Class Officers and Homeroom Representatives are elected by their peers at the beginning of the year. All Student Council members serve a one-year term.
Student Council members are integral in organizing and running Spirit Week, Spirit Days, dances, pep-rallies, and other various on and off-campus social events.
Clubs at Viewpoint School are sponsored, driven, led, and promoted by students. They encourage student involvement, enhance the student experience, create a diverse community, and provide opportunities for students to build leadership skills. Open to all Viewpoint students, these clubs organize programs, events, and meetings across campus throughout the academic year. In the fall of each year, students may sponsor a new or previously existing club. Students then host a Club Fair, which is designed to help students learn what activities are available for them to join.
