Wellness and Physical Education

Our physical education curriculum promotes a healthy lifestyle and lifelong wellness through the development of each girl’s physical health, talents, interests, self-confidence, and relationships with others.

Lower School

Lower School students participate in physical education classes four days a week and wellness activities one day a week. PE provides the physical activity and skill-based instruction that growing bodies need.

Middle School

Middle School Wellness classes build on foundations set in the Lower School, and set the stage for more advanced concepts in the Upper School. Students practice goal setting, decision making, conflict resolution, and communication skills by exploring the eight concepts of the Wellness Wheel - social, emotional, intellectual, financial, physical, environmental, and occupational health.

Upper School

Upper School students participate in seasonal sports as well as continue Wellness education through “Transitions” courses. These classes are tailored to each grade and involve discussions on issues ranging from stress management to preparing for life in college and beyond.
