Beyond the classroom, we want Ann Richards School (ARS) students to become lifelong leaders. That’s why we encourage our girls to participate in everything from sports and fine arts to afterschool programs and leadership groups. We know these activities develop well-rounded leaders and foster a sense of community and camaraderie.

Roller derby, robotics, and Math Counts—there’s something for every girl to participate in at ARS.
ARS students are getting in the game! We offer six sports: volleyball, soccer, track and field, cross country, tennis and basketball so that our girls form exercise habits—and take part in competition, too.
From band and choir to art and theatre, our students have many channels to express their creativity.
Service is in our DNA at the Ann Richards School, and because of this, we encourage our students to get involved in our community any way they can.
We keep the learning opportunities going even when school isn’t in session, and we encourage our students to take part in at least one of our summer programs each year.
Our clubs and student organizations promote scholarship, emphasizing academics in the National Honors Societies, Youth and Government, and student council.
Through Boys and Girls Clubs of America, known at ARS as Girls Club, our students have the chance to participate in the community and learn valuable life skills.
