Topics covered included the School’s strong and upward academic performance trends over the past number of years, college placement data, extracurricular and athletic programming successes, the MICDS budget and financial condition, endowment performance, updates on key performance goals of the 2015-2022 MICDS Strategic Plan and insights into Board priorities for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Our college matriculation results are one great indicator of that success.”
