The Flying Dragons

cross country and track & field

-- Our Purpose --

The Flying Dragons are the cross country and track & field program of the High School for Math, Science, and Engineering in New York, New York. We're a public school and as such our teams compete in the Public School Athletic League. Boys and girls train together but race separately.

The purpose of the Flying Dragons is adolescent character development through athletic training, leadership development, public service, and interscholastic competition.
