San Domenico Middle School Student Life—Clubs, Teams, and Service Learning
Students constantly make connections between school and the "real world" both in Marin County and as global citizens. Students emerge confident and eager to learn.
Student Activities / Clubs
Students can choose quarterly activities like intramural athletics, creative independent study, reading buddies, horseback riding, and parlour games. Activities include clubs such as Social Justice and Mathletes teams.
Leadership / Student Council
Skills in leadership are fostered and emphasized throughout San Domenico, and numerous opportunities exist for students to be involved in activities such as athletics, arts, student newspaper, yearbook, and competitions. Officers in our active Student Government lead daily Morning Meetings and organize numerous activities for the student body.
Available teams are Flag Football, CYO Girls’ Volleyball, CYO Basketball, Track & Field, and Girls’ Soccer. Middle school athletics at San Domenico had a record turnout in the 2010-11 year.
Off-campus Educational Opportunities
Each year, students spend several days engaged in team building activities and off campus education. Our faculty integrates the academic component of the week into their curriculum, including class instruction. Currently sixth grade students learn more about Earth Science and Geology at Point Bonita, seventh grade students travel to Mt. Cross near Santa Cruz, where they study Coast Redwood ecology and explore Elkhorn Slough by kayak, while eighth grade students travel to Washington DC for a week to see our government in action and visit the historical sites they have been learning about in their U.S. history and government class.
Middle school students are actively engaged in the school's Sustainability Program including restoration of the seasonal creek bed on campus and daily composting in the organic garden.
