The Golden Hawks MAO Booster Club (Booster) is an independent Florida non-profit corporation and is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3), I.R.C. The group formed to support the student Miami Springs Senior High Mu Alpha Theta Math Honor Society and to promote math and STEM education within their community.
The Mu Alpha Theta Math Team is open to all students who wish to be part of the Math National Honor Society and/or who want to improve their math skills and advance to competitive events. Teams and individuals compete in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus, Statistics and Calculus. Computer competitions are also included at some of the competitions. T
Some of the competitions are held at school but the majority of competitions are held outside of Miami Springs and the students travel to these competitions at the local, state, and national levels with the assistance of the Booster Club. The club routinely ranks in the top twenty schools nationwide and often in the top ten. It is unique in developing member leadership skills as older students mentor younger students and prepare them for competition. MAO students at MSSH are often winners of the school\’s highest awards and all go to college, many winning substantial scholarships. Today, MSSH MAO alumni work at some of the most prestigious companies in the world.
The Booster Club engages in fundraising throughout the year to help provide funds to allow all interested students an opportunity to participate in the club\’s activities without financial constraint. This provides equal opportunities to all of the talented and curious minds that participate in MSSH MAO.
