Administrative Assistant

The Minnesota State High School League Mission

The Minnesota State High School League provides educational opportunities for students through interscholastic athletics and fine arts programs, and provides leadership and support for member schools. 

The Minnesota State High School League believes in:

  • Participation in school activity programs is a privilege and not a right.
  • Sportsmanship needs to have a constant presence in all school-based activity programs.
  • Students should have an equal opportunity to participate in all activities offered by their school.
  • Ethical behavior, dignity and respect are non-negotiable.
  • Student participants who choose to be chemically free must be supported.
  • Collaborative relationships with parents enhance a school's opportunity to positively impact student success.
  • Academic priorities must come before participation in athletic or fine arts activities.
  • Positive role models and an active involvement in a student's life by parents and others are critical to student success.
  • High school activity programs are designed for student participants, and adults must serve in a supportive role.
  • The success of the team is more important than individual honors.
  • Compliance with school, community and League rules is essential for all activity participants.
  • Participation in school-sponsored activities must be inclusive, not exclusive.
  • Ethical behavior, fairness, and embracing diversity best serve students and school communities.
