Athletics

Our whole-child physical education program integrates mind, body, and heart. On our ropes course, on our two innovative playgrounds, on our interscholastic teams, students develop flexibility, resilience, and courage—physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Every student in grades 6—9 has the opportunity to play on an interscholastic team. Sports are optional, but around 75 percent of Middle School students participate in at least one sport. Our program stresses sportsmanship, skill building, perseverance, self confidence and teamwork. Our focus is on participation and cooperation; all team members have regular opportunities for playing time.
