We’re very proud of our students here at Wickenburg High School. We encourage and support the unique talents and interests of our students. We offer a variety of clubs and organizations, all designed to inspire our students to enjoy learning, support each other, and build strong character.
The Anime Club allows students to gather for a common interest: Anime! Anime is Japanese animation and includes shows like Naruto and Sailor Moon, as well as popular movies like Spirited Away and Ponyo. The group will watch Anime and learn about Japanese culture. We meet every Wednesday after school. Please contact Jennifer Benton for additional information. New members are always welcome!
The Wickenburg High School Community Club is a place where friends gather to socialize, fund-raise, and participate in community service projects. This year we began a volunteer study program with businesses in town that works with the local Elks Lodge to present a district wide special field day. The club is open to all high school students and meets Wednesdays after school. Please contact Barbara Hashagen for more information.
The WHS Fashion Club is associated with the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise in California. We welcome students who are interested in design, fashion business, crafting, photography, jewelry, modeling, or other areas of the industry to join the club. The Fashion Club puts on events throughout the school year and takes field trips (including an annual trip to LA to visit FIDM), learns about careers in fashion, and attends a professional fashion show. For more information, please contact Robin Quinn.
The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who demonstrate excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship (for NJHS). These characteristics have been a part of membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929. Today, it is estimated that more than one million students participate in activities of the NHS and NJHS. There are chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, many U.S. Territories, and Canada. Chapter membership not only recognizes students for their accomplishments, but challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service.
PRIDE stands for Promoting Respect for the Individual Differences in Everyone. PRIDE is Wickenburg High School’s GSA and leads such initiatives as Anti-Bullying Week and Day of Silence. Students learn about social issues and work to improve the climate of the school. We meet once a week before school and once a month on Friday for educational break-out sessions. Please see Mrs. Quinn if you would like to join or if you would like additional information. New members are always welcome!
Wickenburg High School rifle team is the only high school high power rifle team in the nation. Rex Powers founded the program in 1955. He is dedicated to sportsmanship, fun, and the fundamentals of high power shooting for the local youth with emphasis on safety.
Wickenburg High school rifle team holds four national titles with some pretty steep competition. Their competitors include world class shooters, military teams, state and foreign teams, and they even beat the secret service. They compete using a six inch target at 600 feet. For fun they practice with a 12” target from one mile away! This team is also big on looking for ways to serve. They quickly offered help and responded to the Yarnell fire and Wickenburg flood victims.
The Rodeo Club is a club for students interested in animal equine and rodeo. We have weekly meetings from the beginning of the school year through December, then every other week from January through May. Our mission is to support our local high school rodeo in October, as well as other community activities encouraging the western heritage of our town through various fundraising opportunities. Please contact Bobbi Ballard for more information about the Rodeo Club.
Wickenburg High School also has a SADD Chapter, Students Against Destructive Decisions. Meetings for SADD are on Thursday mornings from 7:30 - 7:55 a.m. in Room N-114.
SkillsUSA (formerly known as VICA, the Vocational Industrial Clubs of America) is a national organization serving teachers, high school, and college students who are preparing for careers in technical, skilled, service, and health occupations as well as just seeking further education. SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry representatives working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student to excel.

Student Council is a campus organization where all of its members are elected by the student body of Wickenburg High School. Elections are held in the spring for the upcoming school year for all grades but the upcoming freshmen. Freshmen elections are held the first full week of school. To be considered for Student Council, students must follow a code of ethics and demonstrate the pillars of character.
Code of Ethics
6. Lead with integrity
Student Council members are responsible for campus wide events and are in charge of homecoming activities, prom, winter formal, assemblies, senior/graduation programs, and other activities which promote school spirit and student involvement. Members have fundraisers throughout the year to help with these endeavors. Student Council members are required to have 50 service hours per semester helping out their community and school.
Student Council is responsible for approving campus wide fundraising as well as all new organizations on campus. Meetings are held each week to vote on new orders of business in the school.
Being in Student Council teaches young people about leadership, civic duty, organization, group dynamics, and parliamentary procedure. It is a great way to be involved and make a difference at Wickenburg High School.
