The Jazz Band is composed of approximately 20 members from within the band, selected by audition as openings occur. All rehearsals are after school in the form of one evening, one afternoon rehearsal, and periodic rehearsals after and during school. The music ranges from the big band swing era of the thirties to the jazz-rock of today. The Jazz Band performs at concerts and assemblies and usually participates in the regional and state jazz festivals.
The Jazz Choir is a select group that focuses on vocal jazz music. The group meets twice weekly after school and studies the various techniques of singing jazz including scat singing. This group performs extensively in the community and throughout the state. Performance opportunities include the district and state jazz festivals. Members are selected by audition and must be in the band or chorus. (Any exceptions are at the discretion of the director.)
The Math Team is open to any student with a strong interest in mathematics. Students participate in five regular meets competing against other schools in the Aroostook League. The season culminates with the annual State Math Meet held in Southern Maine in April.

SPEECH & DEBATE
This interscholastic activity promotes debate and speech activities in Maine schools. The Maine Forensic Association (MFA) administers the activities in Maine with governance from the Maine Principals’ Association. The three forms of debate include Policy, Lincoln-Douglas, and Public Forum. Humorous Interpretation and Original Works are two of the 11 categories of speech. The goal of this team is to promote the increasing relevance of oral communication for students, to teach cross-over skills such as research and teamwork, and to engage a student who may shine in activities that involve oral communication
