Clubs & Activities

At MHS student activities are about connecting with others, creating something new, and learning to lead. Whether your passion is singing, writing short stories, gathering trivia on Oscar winning movies, raising money to help fund a girls' school in Rwanda, or organizing an event for Special Olympics, you will be able to connect with others in a Miss Hall's club or activity. When girls come together around something they care about, there is no limit to what they can make happen. 

Girls also join together through cherished traditions that create strong community bonds with other MHS girls today and unite current students with generations of women who have enjoyed the same traditions in earlier years. Blue-Gold competitions, Music & Dance Night, Senior Ring Dinner, and Big/Little Sisters are only a few of the wonderful activities that create memories that last a lifetime.
