The Urbandale Community School District welcomes all students in grades 7-12 to get involved in Urbandale Activities. Urbandale High School athletics, drama, instrumental music, and vocal music all boast a highly decorated history of achieving accomplishments, receiving awards, and developing lifelong friendships and mentorships. The Urbandale Activities Department has collaborated with Character Counts In Iowa and the Institute for Excellence & Ethics from New York in order to build the J-Hawk Foundations program: a custom-designed, research-based program centered on building excellence, character, and leadership development.  This program is believed to be the first of its kind in any high school in the United States.
