In grades five through eight, age-appropriate texts and resources are used to teach mental, physical, and social skills necessary to maintaining one's health. Units taught include human growth and development, evaluating health-related information, products and services, decision-making, family living, nutrition, safety and basic first aid, and environmental health.
The Middle School physical education program stresses physical fitness and a variety of athletic experiences. The program includes an Olympic competition and training and testing for the President's Physical Fitness Test. Also included are units on soccer, flag football, volleyball, tennis, aerobics, cardiovascular fitness and conditioning, basketball, softball, baseball, lacrosse, snow-skiing, rock climbing and ice skating. Participation is mandatory. However, students develop skills for performance at their individual levels.
