Northgate Gators Athletics

  • North Kansas City Schools believes that interscholastic athletics and activities are important supplements to the secondary curricular program and are vital to a student’s total middle school educational experience. These experiences contribute to the development of learning skills and emotional patterns that enable a student to make maximum use of their middle school education. Participation in athletics and activities will assist a student to develop emotionally, mentally, socially and physically.
