  • Summer Enrichment Programs

    Summer is an excellent time to explore colleges and careers. Summer enrichment programs allow students to learn leadership skills, explore a major or career interest and experience life on a college campus. Click here for a list of opportunities, including Girls and Boys State, UF Research Immersion in Science and Engineering (for current 9th grade students), and many others. Some are in Florida, but many are programs around the country. More programs will be added, so check back often.

    Community Service - be a volunteer!

    Give back to our school and community by volunteering. Help to make it a better place, help those less fortunate, and experience personal growth. There are many ways you can volunteer. Many of our clubs at MHS participate in community service projects, but you can also volunteer on your own. Not sure what to do?
