MISSION AND GOAL STATEMENT
The Mission for the Athletic Department at Maynard H. Jackson High School is to provide “an opportunity for students to realize their athletic potential and become well rounded students. Athletics is one of a number of programs that support the academic core. Athletics enables students to have experiences where they learn the value and importance of commitment, cooperation, dedication, and hard work. It also helps in the development of respect for oneself, for teammates and for opponents that will help the student-athlete mature. In sports as in the classroom, the overcoming of personal and situational adversities encourages the growth of self-confidence. These and other lessons learned through athletics will enhance the opportunity for students to become healthy, responsible, and productive citizens.
The goal of the Maynard H. Jackson High School Athletic Program is to provide student athletes a place outside the classroom to succeed. Our goal is to develop and improve fundamentals and skill levels, and to provide each athlete with the opportunity to participate at the highest level he/she can. The MJHS Athletic Program is structured so that participants will acquire positive values such as teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, dedication, hard work and, in general, a positive experience with being part of the team.
