Every year WHLA participates in the Poetry Out Loud national recitation contest. We send our school's top scoring student to Cheyenne to compete in the state recitation contest.
Since 2013 WHLA has had an active strategy club, members of the club get together and play strategic board games, card games, and outdoor activities.
Since 2015 WHLA has had an active Anime Club. The club watches and discusses anime that has been chosen by the members and approved by the principle.
In 2016 our students started participating in drama and theater. The first play our students did was an adapted version of The Masque of the Red Death. The second play was student-written, named The Lion, the Witch and the Dragon.
