Welcome to our world, “The Other Side of Education”.  The Office of Interscholastic Athletics of Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS) believes that interscholastic athletics is a way to achieve a balanced educational program for our students.  As we all know athletic competition, by its nature, will contribute to greater student awareness of self-discipline, a growth in emotional maturity, and an increasing realization of the worth of the individual.  Students will also realize that participation in athletics is not only a privilege, but is also an honor that requires responsibility for maintaining one’s academic standing in the classroom and for maintaining a high standard of conduct.
