Student Council
The Niagara High School Student Council provides the main forum for discussing student concerns and ideas. We are dedicated to developing leadership skills and enhancing co-curricular life. In addition, students are given the opportunity to interact with faculty, staff and administrators. The student council is responsible for representing and serving the needs of the student body through coordinating student activities and charity fundraisers and holding monthly meetings.
