MMC Honors

Our students are artists, writers, future doctors and lawyers, dancers, activists, gamers, and leaders. What do they all have in common? Ambition, drive, and intelligence. 

At MMC, we have multiple honors programs and organizations to suit the many ways our students achieve. From honor societies to Honors Day, we offer several ways to challenge and recognize our most exceptional students.
