Extracurricular Programs

We encourage students at Blanket High School to participate in extracurricular activities so they can explore new interests, learn valuable skills, meet like-minded peers, and have their eyes opened to a world of possibilities.


National Honor Society (NHS) members are more than just kids with good grades. Nomination to the Blanket chapter of NHS is an honor reserved for students who demonstrate not only good scholarship but who also engage in service and exhibit leadership skills and potential.


Blanket ISD students may participate in the University Interscholastic League (UIL), which offers a number of competitive events to complement the academic curriculum. The UIL program motivates students as they acquire higher levels of knowledge, challenges students to confront issues of importance, and provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of specific skills. Students rise to the challenged to think critically and creatively as they represent our school.
