Involvement changes at the high school level, with booster clubs and the like, but lots of high schools have successful PTOs. Usually the PTO is more in a role of supporting groups organized by kids than creating a whole roster of activities as at the elementary level. But parent groups often organize the graduation party, help out clubs, sponsor field trips, and organize special events like a prom dress exchange, for example. If you're more interested in continuing on with the elementary or middle school PTO even though your children are no longer in the school, I think that's great. Although some groups limit membership to parents and guardians of children in the school, I personally think all groups should accept help from anyone willing to offer it. If you volunteer, I bet you won't be turned down.
