Physical Education

The School’s physical education program promotes lifetime fitness and sports skills and activities for play and recreation in an inclusive and nurturing environment that fosters sportsmanship and team building.

The School’s facilities include two state-of-the-art gymnasiums and ample play and outdoor recreation spaces. Physical education classes for kindergartners meet two times a week; classes for first through eighth graders meet four times weekly.

In the upper grades participation on age-appropriate intramural teams offers opportunities for skill building, enhanced self-esteem, and good sportsmanship.

Athletic competition with other schools begins for boys and girls in grade five. Team sports include basketball, soccer, and volleyball. Fourth and fifth graders are eligible to participate in the intramural spring basketball league at the School.
