What Makes Shabazz Graduation Unique?

As opposed to the required gowns in traditional high school ceremonies, Shabazz graduates may wear whatever they would like as long as it is accordance with MMSD dress code. They also choose their own cap colors - graduates will look like a field of wildflowers, out mascot! Grads also receive a multi-colored 2024 tassel.

After being introduced by a staff member, every graduate has the option to speak when they receive their diploma on stage. Please keep your remarks to about one minute in length. One minute doesn't sound like a lot, but if you practice, you'll realize you can get a lot said in that amount of time.

Chromebook Return
Please return your MMSD Chromebook to Jaren in the main office. You can do this at any time during school hours on any of the remaining school days.

If you would like your official transcript sent to post-secondary institutions, click here for the details on how to do so via an online service called Parchment. Clicking this link takes you directly to a site to create your Parchment account: Shabazz City High School.
