Athletic Department Philosophy

The Midland Park School District values a comprehensive program of student activities, recognizing its importance to the holistic development of our students. Our community, though small in size, is strong in spirit and commitment.

Athletics hold a significant place in the life of Midland Park High School. Participation in interscholastic sports teaches our students essential lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and handling victories and defeats with dignity. These experiences are crucial in helping students develop a positive self-image and maintain physical health. Moreover, athletic competition boosts school spirit and instills pride in our school community.

Our athletic program's main objective is to create enriching opportunities for students to cultivate leadership skills and positive social interactions.

We prioritize high-quality coaching leadership, serving as role models for our athletes. Success in leadership should be gauged not by the number of wins and losses, but by the growth of character, courage, and integrity in our students.

The athletic program is designed to complement the broader goals of our school, aligning with its policies and principles. It is crucial that the program enhances, rather than overshadows, the overall educational experience, fostering the development of well-rounded individuals ready to make meaningful contributions to society.
