The physical education program takes full account of students’ physical and cognitive development and is based upon State of California standards.
For students in the lower division, these standards emphasize the way they move through space and time in their environment, the way they move through space and time with a partner, continuity and change in their movement, the manipulation of objects in time and through space, and the manipulation of objects with accuracy and speed.
For students in the middle division, these standards emphasize working cooperatively to achieve a common goal, meeting challenges, making decisions, and working as a team to solve problems. Across both divisions, students learn good sportsmanship and resilience while becoming stronger, faster, and more physically confident. Sport-specific curricula for older students align with the middle division’s athletics seasons.
Please feel free to direct your specific questions regarding the program of study to Susan Rymzo, director of admissions for the lower and middle divisions.
