They offer extra curriculars based on student interests. Because the school is small, the activities are geared towards the interests of what most kids would want to do. They weren't able to offer all the activities listed when we did an orientation before joining the school. This year they offered activities such as: soccer, basketball, coding, chess club, hockey/skating for instance. The extracurriculars are an additional cost. They run for approximately in 3 month increments.

The extracurricular activities opportunities at Delano are offered after school hours and tailored to the students, based on their needs and choices. Parents and Students are always encouraged to give suggestions to the School and keep an open communication. School provides options such as robotics, reading program, chess, athletics, etc. Students are always encouraged to do extra-curricular activities and are shown the importance of each one of them, for their personal success and also their groups.

All the extracurricular (PE, Music, Art) teachers at Delano are professionals invited to teach. We don't have a math teacher teaching PE like some other schools. Extracurricular is very important in kids' health and development. I have to say, this played a very important role in my decision. Perfect example, I play the piano, but I can't teach my kids how they study under a professional piano teacher. I can't tell you how many times I watch them in class and think "WOW! I never would have thought to put it this way". High-tech educational tools, such as iPads, computers, Littlebits, Sphero etc are provided. Their STEM learning involves serious teaching and learning, unlike other schools who might be using low-cost consumables and call it STEM as long as kids are making something.

The school is actively involved with SSAF, competing in long-distance running, both indoor and outdoor soccer, basketball, and track and field. Soccer and basketball are popular extracurriculars and they have both a junior and senior class. Chess is also offered on a regular basis. They also have had sessions in coding, sketch-up, and robotics. The entire school is split into houses and there are various intramural challenges throughout the year. Children earn points and at the end of the year, there is a celebration. Not only are house teams for physical activity, but they are incorporated into charity work, peer mentoring, and leadership. There is an annual food drive, book drive, and funds are raised for the Terry Fox Foundation.
