Student Life

Clubs & Activities

Clubs at MHS provide students with opportunities to bond through a particular passion, dig deeper into topics of interest or just have fun. Whether you want to perform in a band, publish short stories, raise money to help fund a girls' school in Rwanda, or organize an event for Special Olympics, you will be able to connect with others in a Miss Hall's club or activity. It all depends on what you’re interested in. And, if you don’t see a club you like? Start your own!
