Scales Mound CUSD #211 is committed to the idea that interscholastic competition in athletics and other IHSA programs is an opportunity to develop the lifelong traits of strong character, self discipline, good sportsmanship, leadership skills, team work and strong work ethic. These programs further challenge students athletes to develop a positive self concept as well as a healthy body and mind. A good interscholastic program is one which strives toward continual improvement and maximizes the potential of students and teams, as well as teaches those who participate that cooperation, as well as competition, are well as competition, are important parts of the society in which we live. The goal of the Scales Mound interscholastic program is to teach victory and the acceptance of defeat and keep in proper prospective. We believe that adherence to this philosophy will ensure the best possible experience for all of our students.
