Clubs & Organizations

At Montezuma-Cortez High School, we are proud to offer a variety of clubs, organizations, and extra curricular activities for our students to take part in.  We believe that by offering these groups, we are giving our students many opportunities to expand their horizons, sharpen their skills, and make new friends. These organizations offer our students a chance to experience the world right here in our Panther corner of the world at M-CHS.
