Physical Education

Learning the challenges and joys of physical activity

We believe that our students benefit from experiencing the challenges and joys of physical activity, and our physical education program is designed to be age- and division-appropriate.
 

Lower School

Through a vibrant physical education program, our Lower School students tumble, run, jump rope, hula-hoop, dance, and learn the proper mechanics of gross motor skills, like throwing, kicking, and striking. Then they combine their skills in cooperative games where they dodge, duck, and chase classmates until they're panting, laughing, and wholly unaware of how fit they're becoming. Before being introduced to formal after-school athletics, students learn basic building blocks of skills and fitness in a safe, encouraging environment.

Middle School

Students have the opportunity to be exposed to a wide assortment of lifetime fitness activities as well as team and individual sports. Throughout their Middle School experience, students will gain exposure to a wide variety of activities including badminton, archery, tennis, track and field, soccer, softball, field hockey, football, lacrosse, basketball, volleyball, weight training, team handball, and folk dancing. Students also may choose to take dance which is taught by our very own dance instructor.

Upper School

Physical education classes, complemented by interscholastic sports, help develop healthy, well-rounded students and encourage a fitness lifestyle that provides for future enjoyment of leisure time opportunities. Students in 9th and 10th grade participate in the physical education program and have greater flexibility in choice of program than their younger peers.
