    The staff at Gulf Coast High believes it is important for students to be involved in clubs and activities at the school. Below is a list of clubs and activities available to students. 

    Students may start their own club once they have a school sponsor, have established bylaws and have approval from Mr.Nelson.  Club Rush is scheduled at lunch during first quarter giving all students an opportunity to learn about our clubs.  Please note that all clubs must be established with a school sponsor and approval from Mr.Nelson by the date of Club Rush.

    Some of the clubs and activities have websites that you can access to learn more about the organization. These links are provided to you for your convenience. When you click on one of these links, you leave the Collier County High School website. These sites are not under the control of Gulf Coast High School or the Collier County School System. Gulf Coast High School is not responsible for the contents of any of these sites.
