8 The primary mission of the Monticello High School Athletic Department is to is to help participants mature into productive citizens. Long after students have left Monticello High School and have become a part of everyday American life, the ideals exemplified in our athletic program should be carried on if this purpose is achieved. We aim to develop high competitive athletic and activities programs while emphasizing educational values such as sportsmanship, health and scholastic achievement.  Athletics are a part of the total educational program and should emphasize the “student first” philosophy.  We are not a win at all cost program but realize the importance that the expectation of success can play in creating a competitive environment.  Being an athlete at Monticello is a privilege and not a right.  Held to high academic standards.  Behavior on and off the field/court should be exemplary.  Athletes will face adversity, but that is okay.  We encourage multi-sport participation among our student-athletes and we emphasize working together to better the entire athletic program.
