MCDS values and develops the whole child. Athletics at MCDS help our students cultivate teamwork, self-confidence, sporting behavior, and a lifelong love of physical endeavor. From the Kindergarten soccer program to the Middle School basketball teams to the High School cross country team, our students enjoy a variety of sports in all levels of the school. MCDS’ no-cut policy allows each student to contribute. MCDS athletes benefit from our carefully maintained facilities such as our collegiate-level track and gymnasium, as well as, our dedicated coaches and supportive school spirit. Our WIAA cooperative partnerships with other local high schools provide a range of additional varsity sport opportunities to our high school athletes. Go Prairie Hawks!
MCDS athletic opportunities include football, track & field, basketball, volleyball, soccer, cross country, crew, golf and opportunities through our WIAA cooperative partnership.
