Student activities[edit]

Cedar Shoals features a variety of student activities.

  • The JROTC Raider team of male and female JROTC cadets compete at many state, regional and national Raider events. For the 70th anniversary of D-Day, they were the only group from Georgia to be invited to march in the D-Day Memorial parade in Ste. Mere-Eglise on June 6, 2014. Airtran delayed the Atlanta to New York flight for four hours causing them to miss the flight to Paris. They were forced to spend the night at JFK Airport until another airline was able to carry them to France. The cadets marched proudly in the parade in Ste Mere Eglise, toured the Normandy area and Paris before returning home on June 11th, 2014.
  • The Classic City Sound Marching Band, under the direction of Dion Muldrow, has earned several Superior honors at area marching band festivals. Known for their halftime shows highlighting pop, funk and even Latin fares, the band has performed at the Allstate Sugar Bowl as well as the National 4th of July Parade in Washington DC.
  • The CSHS Academic Team, commonly called the QuizJags, has won several city, region and state titles since 2004. In 2013, they won the GATA Class 5A JV Championship (their first state title in school history), the GHSA Region 8 5A Varsity champion and the three time defending Classic City Champion, defeating cross town rival Clarke Central High School the last three years to earn the right to play on WSB-TV's "HighQ" program, where they have used their scoring ability to raise funds for the United Way and the Athens Area Homeless Shelter. During the 1013-14 season, they defeated Forsyth Central, Pickens County, and Woodward Academy to make the tournament's final four. On April 26, 2014, they defeated Prince Avenue Christian School in the semi-finals to advance to the HighQ championship match against The Galloway School, which they won to win $5000 in scholarship money for the players. They also won the Varsity and JV team titles at the 2014 Region 8-AAAAA tournament.
