The Board of Education recognizes the value of interscholastic athletics to our school community. The primary purpose of the athletic program is to enhance the comprehensive educational experience of students. Mattawan places top priority on the values of good sportsmanship, academic scholarship, scope of programs, and safety of participants.
The athletic program strives to provide students the opportunity to exercise and test their athletic abilities in a context greater and more varied than that which can be offered by the classroom alone. Game activities and practice sessions should provide many opportunities to teach the positive values of educational athletics.
