Extracurriculars

During the spring semester, MSMS’ Asian Student Association hosts the Annual International Culture Fair where students and community members can check out diverse culture displays.

The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science is proud to offer over 50 unique clubs and organizations, tailored to individual student interests and abilities. Students are encouraged to create new clubs based on their interests by following the appropriate process with the Student Government Association. Additionally, students have the opportunity for leadership development through elected positions as Class and Club Officers. 

Because all clubs at MSMS are student-led, with faculty sponsors, students have a unique opportunity to shape the activities their clubs and organizations engage in during their two years at MSMS.   

Students also have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of academic and special interest competitions. Some examples include Quiz Bowl, Science Bowl, International Science Fair, Poetry Out Loud, Welty Creative Writing Competition, Scholastic Art and Writing Competition, and Robotics FIRST. These are just a handful of the competitions MSMS students participate in year after year. Students are encouraged to seek out academic competitions tailored to their unique interests.

Art Club is welcoming of all students, regardless of artistic abilities, and we will be undertaking a number of fun projects to engage the MSMS community throughout the year.

Blu Diamondz is an all-inclusive performing step team founded upon sisterhood and service. Yes, we’re the girls that stroll and step at the parties! Each year, we accept new members and integrate them into the sisterhood by teaching them old steps and strolls, while also coming up with new ones. Being rooted in service, Blu Diamondz typically participate in several community service projects throughout the school year—when given the opportunity. We strive to emulate the unexplainable bond between the “Divine 9” organizations of the NPHC, so we pride ourselves on being the “sisters” to the boys’ step team, Blu Knightz. In January of 2020, both organizations collaborated to form the inaugural “MSMS Allstars” step team, and we are eager for the “MSMS Allstars” culture to continue. Blu Diamondz look forward to growing the club and accepting new members!

At the end of the meeting everyone receives a name of someone who was there (picked randomly), and it is given so that you may be able to focus your prayer that week on that person. We know MSMS can be difficult, but God says that we should not worry and should not fear anyone but Him. Our time on Earth is tough but we will make it through with our Christian family and faith in Jesus.
