Mohawk’s diverse student body enjoys a daily routine of traditional academic and readiness classroom activities combined with the additional benefits of a unique setting: visits to the farm, apple and grape picking, hayrides, and tapping maple trees to make syrup. With three playgrounds, a large blacktop for bikes and scooter play, a new play village and expansive ball fields/courts; MCDS has plenty of room for physical and motor development.
