    Newsworthy in our many accomplishments, the McIntosh Chiefs continue our pursuit of excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts. Headlining the news, McIntosh earned a 2015 College Career Readiness Performance Index score of 92.2 and an "A" school rating. The 2016 girls' soccer team obtained their 10th state championship title in the 25 years , and our Chiefettes dance team continues their 7-year run of state championship titles. Our school's first robotics team ranked 2nd in the state and nation in the first ever UAS4STEM hovercraft competition. Musicians and vocalists earned state and national recognition for their individual achievements. 


    Students, teachers, parents, and community members embrace and celebrate the standards of excellence established at McIntosh High School. Chick-fil-A highlighted the start of the 2016-17 school year with a school-wide celebration of the grand re-opening of the Midtown Chick-fil-A providing all school attendees a complimentary CFA sandwich.
