Club Information

Below you will find the various clubs offered here at MCSH and the criteria to join each.  Club membership in high school makes the student's time more enjoyable, increases self-confidence, helps students learn the importance of teamwork, as well as teaches leadership and responsibility.  For those applying to college, being involved in a club is an important item to include on college applications and can help the student obtain scholarships.  We encourage everyone to become involved and find a way to make a difference.
