Physical Education 

Students of all ages receive some form of physical education daily and one yoga class per week. The type and duration of physical education is determined on a program-by-program basis. Our PE program is run by Sportball and includes sports skills; health and nutrition; and cooperative, team-building games.

Yoga Instruction is offered weekly to all students. Students engage in movement, balance, stretching, and breathing activities that teach body control, discipline, and calming techniques.
