Clubs and extra-curricular activities have always been a big part of Peters Township High School tradition. Student Council and National Honor Society are two groups with a long-standing history in the school. Other activities include the Thespians, Marching Band, Dance Company, Forensics, Smoke Signals, Cheerleaders, Ski Club, FBLA, International Society, and Yearbook.
In 1980, the Student Council initiated the high school's first fall Homecoming, complete with a Homecoming Week, Homecoming Parade, pre-game ceremonies, and a Homecoming Dance.

By 1982, the high school was in line for an addition due to growth in student enrollment. Added to the structure through 1983 was a new cafeteria with a patio and foyer, an expanded office area, six new classrooms, a staircase and an elevator. The school received a new entrance to the gym, expanded gym and shop facilities, and four new fields. The senior class of 1983 was beginning school as kindergartners in 1969 when this high school was built.
The year 1988 brought with it lots of excitement to the high school. The Varsity Boys Soccer team won their first state championship. They went on to win the title again in 1989 with a 23-3-1 season.
Weighted grades became
a reality for students participating in advanced
and honors courses.
The library was on its way to becoming fully computerized. Thanks to Access PA students would have access to 250,000 titles from the high school library and other schools.
