Upper School Program (Grades 6-8)

The Upper School P.E. program builds upon the Lower School curriculum with even more emphasis on the importance of cooperative team participation and sportsmanship. Upper School students focus on age-appropriate skill acquisition, concepts, rules, and strategies. They then practice incorporating their knowledge via drills, cooperative activities, creative games, and scrimmages that lead up to game play. Throughout the week, different running activities are integrated into each student's daily warm-up as part of their overall cardiovascular conditioning. Time is also spent teaching students how to win and lose while demonstrating integrity, empathy, and maturity.
